Data Center Consolidation: Management Foundation Based on Service-Driven Operations

Cover
A typically complex, distributed, and heterogeneous IT environment is very difficult and expensive to manage and can lead to escalating operational costs, inflexible infrastructure, and ever-increasing difficulties in meeting service levels. Consequently, the proliferation of system silos found within the majority of enterprises today is not sustainable in the long term. This white paper explains how this problem can be addressed through data center consolidation and the adoption of a corresponding centralized management approach, as well as the benefits that it can bring including:

  • A reduction in the system administration overhead
  • Easier data management
  • A simplified infrastructure
  • More efficient use of resources
  • Increased leverage of shared services
  • Improved IT risk management posture
  • The ability to evolve more easily to a service-centric IT infrastructure
