Today's Consolidation Trends in the Data Center
A spending spree in the late 1990s left most, if not all, data centers with a hodge podge of IT infrastructure that was largely tactically deployed to meet immediate enterprise needs. As the bubble burst, budgets contracted, and arguably cooler headers began to prevail. The data center has been tasked with improving its overall efficiency and ROI while maintaining often disparate applications and resources that are the lifeblood of the enterprise. As a result, the need for consolidation and simplification within the data center has never been greater.
These slide topics include server consolidation through scaling up versus scaling out, blade servers, and new opportunities in mainframe technology, as well as storage rationalization through advances in networked storage, information lifecycle management and the impact of new compliance regulations.
