Data center optimization​


​Are you looking for solutions that will help contain complexity and cost while boosting efficiency and productivity? If so, your data center is the ideal place to start. It’s possible that your data center has evolved over time and makes inefficient use of computing, storage, and energy resources. To optimize your data center you need to make strategic decisions about the use of on​-premise, hosted, colocated, and cloud infrastructure. This will allow you to consolidate your resources, cut costs, and leverage best practices that increase automation and simplify management.​​​

​​However, creating a next-generation, hybrid data center can involve a number of challenges, for example:

  • Embracing cloud and transitioning to a hybrid IT model needs to be carefully planned and executed.
  • As the demand for IT capacity continues to mount, you may be experiencing shortages in data center space, and power or cooling capacity.
  • Your infrastructure and operations teams are under pressure to deliver crucial IT services – including legacy, mission-critical applications – while simultaneously supporting emerging business opportunities.​​​
  • Rationalizing your applications and infrastructure to run either in the cloud, on-premise, or in a colocation facility requires specialized skills, which you may not have in house.
  • Building and running data center​s isn’t your core capability.​​
