Transforming a Global Data Center Environment
This white paper will cover Global Data Center Environment Strategies such as:
- Consolidating data centers, concentrating computing resources into fewer large, highly efficient hub data centers, and closing other local data centers
- Accelerating server refresh, while implementing grid computing and server virtualization to increase utilization, and optimizing storage and networking
- Standardizing processes and design specifications by using a strategic, long-range planning approach, including a reduction in the number of server and storage platform reference designs.
Intel has already begun to achieve benefits in several of these areas, including grid computing, server consolidation, data center consolidation, and long-range planning. Their use of virtualization and grid computing reduces energy consumption and boosts utilization, enabling them to share compute servers by removing physical, geographical, and organizational boundaries and allowing Intel to avoid more than USD 30 million in 2007 capital purchases.
