Simplifying server migration with a well-planned and well-executed rollout
With IT budgets under heightened pressure, it's crucial to optimize your current computing power, yet many organizations use only 15% of their server capacity. Power, cooling and floor space are increasingly expensive. A fragmented server environment can create tough-to-manage server sprawl and impact application availability?as well as increase Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). But upgrading your infrastructure can require resources and expertise that you might not have in-house. And such an upgrade can distract your key technical staff from operational tasks and strategic responsibilities.
