Organizations are slowly, but surely, move away from 20 year old data center designs and long term deployments. Traditional solutions have become increasingly expensive and complex, and have required consulting services to successfully meet business needs. The 21st century data center design brings technical and advisory services to the forefront with a single goal: to make things more secure, more efficient and dramatically more simplified. Gone are the days of buying pallets of equipment from multiple manufacturers, and then utilizing internal resources and external labor to simply get them usable, yet ultimately may not even meet the business requirements.
Management and operational costs in today’s information technology environment account for as much as 70% of total IT spend. Organizations are looking to reduce these costs yet still allow for flexibility and growth as the business demands. New solutions on the market provide a significantly better deployment and operational cost model with streamlined support that all but eliminates any multivendor finger pointing.
Organizations have to move away from the older complex designs that require large numbers of staff to keep running. Businesses are focusing on the applications and data that drive revenue and grows the business. During this event, we’ll outline how we help reduce resource intensive data center operations so that an organization can get back to innovation and supporting future business initiatives.
