Avoiding Death by Complexity: Simplifying Management on the Enterprise IT Floor

Cover
Effective management of business-critical data requires that enterprises get the most out of every investment in corporate IT. However, the current level of infrastructure complexity found at most large-scale data centers makes this nearly impossible.

Fortunately, a relatively straightforward simplification strategy based on consolidation of the IT infrastructure offers clear advantages in a number of areas, most prominently with hardware CAPEX and with long-term management costs. Learn how a simpler, easier-to-manage IT environment has certain prerequisites, like:

  • Standards compliance to enable basic management capabilities
  • An ability to address higher-order management functions not covered by existing standards
  • A common management interface across both servers and storage to enable managing via interoperable "systems" rather than managing individual technology silos
