  • IDC Technology Spotlight: Datacenter security

    Trying to justify updating your enterprise datacenter? Want to know the true cost of retaining an aging IT infrastructure?

    This IDC Technology Spotlight shows that a buy-and-hold strategy can actually add costs to the datacenter as systems age including:
    - Increases in hardware maintenance costs
    - Lags in Performance
    - Energy efficiency decreases leading to a rise in power/cooling costs
    - Increases in application and system software update costs
    - Increases in system vulnerabilities as software reaches end of life

    Don't let your enterprise fall victim to datacenter failures by retaining an aging infrastructure. See how you can increase your enterprise's return on investment (ROI) by more than 150% with a server upgrade. Download the IDC Spotlight now to justify your datacenter update.
