Building a Bridge to the Next-Generation Datacenter
The capabilities of today’s next-generation data centers not only provide agility benefits but also contain hidden costs and risks. However, standardizing the computing environment and operating procedures is a good way to maximize the gains in agility while reducing the cost and risk.
This paper provides a framework for evaluating the benefits of agility benefits, cost considerations, and risk factors addressed by deploying a standardized infrastructure and processes.
