The Smarter Data Centre
Data centres have a bad reputation lately. Administrators often complain they are expensive to maintain, consume too much energy and run inefficiently. They've been viewed as a burdensome utility or worse: a barrier to growth.
But what if your data centre could be a high-performing strategic asset? What if you could allocate more of your IT budget to innovative new projects? According to the 2012 IBM Global Data Centre Efficiency Study, enterprises with highly efficient data centres allocate 53 percent more of their IT budgets to new projects because they are able to minimize maintenance costs. As one of the world's largest builders and managers of data centres, IBM can help you realize this goal with its Data Centre Services. By planning, designing and automating key functions of your data centres, we build efficient, effective computing hubs that serve as a platform for agility and innovation. With IBM's Data Centre Services, you can identify areas to improve operational efficiency across your infrastructure. Take the 5-minute self-assessment (US).
