Why Read This Report

This report outlines Forrester's solution for infrastructure and operations (I&O) executives working on data center infrastructure. This report is designed to help you build a road map for 2013. As we transition from 2012, the landscape is a combination of the familiar and the new. The drumbeat of new servers and new x86 CPU offerings will continue, with announcements from all of the major players. Forrester also expects to see the early commercialization of ARM CPUs, which will offer additional options for energy-efficient processing. On the data center front, expect that the pressures on power-efficient operations will continue unabated, driving adoption of emerging data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software. Modular data center options will proliferate as entry prices decline and additional options appear. This report focuses on eight key predictions that I&O leaders should consider when planning for their server and data center infrastructure moves.
