Source: Itanium Solutions Alliance
For many years, Microsoft Windows Server running on industry-standard servers has been moving up in the data center, providing businesses with an increasingly scalable and robust platform for running mission-critical business applications. Itanium-based servers have added to this momentum, by providing an affordable, industry-standard hardware platform that rivals high-end RISC and mainframe systems for scalability and availability. This white paper outlines the key advantages of deploying Windows Server 2008 on Itanium-based servers for mission-critical applications, such as enterprise database, Business Intelligence (BI), and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), as well as Line Of Business (LOB) and custom applications.
