Transitioning to a Dynamic Data Center
The speed of change in global markets and the challenges of new modes of business demand companies operate in and react to quickly changing landscapes. Nowhere is this more critical than in the means and methods the enterprise uses to power its business, typically via IT services. As a result, businesses will increasingly demand more from their IT departments, which presents new opportunities for IT teams to adopt new approaches and transform the data center itself so that it is more closely aligned to the business.
The data center and IT services have become instrumental in almost every business in the modern age, yet many are still being powered by legacy infrastructure designed in the previous century. Typically, these environments tend to be rigid and siloed compute infrastructures that are inefficient and costly to scale. Most organizations host the majority of their applications on physical servers and non-virtualized storage environments. Worse, due to these legacy design and technology limitations, IT organization struggle to deliver the services the business demands when it needs them; just maintaining legacy infrastructure consumes the majority of most organizations’ IT budgets and time.
