Rationalizing Data Center Infrastructure Investments For Greatest Efficiency

Why Read This Report

This leads to IT consolidation projects for most large organizations, as the finite resources must do more and as nearly everyone faces space, power, or budget limitations. Server consolidation dominates the activities in this space, but IT consolidation encompasses data center, storage, network, and even client systems rationalization efforts. New technologies, including virtualization, multicore processors, unified networking, and application delivery, are enabling new levels of consolidation and efficiency.
