Why Read This Report
The majority of IT infrastructure and operations professionals today are rationalizing IT to some degree. 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.

New technologies, including virtualization, multicore processors, unified networking, and application delivery, are enabling new levels of consolidation and efficiency.
