Modernizing your data center without without disruption – Five Considerations for IT Decision-Makers
If enterprise IT decision-makers could design the ideal data center, what would it look like? Flexible, for sure. Efficient—in terms of space and power utilization. Lower cost, with attractive return on investment. High feature‑functionality? To a point. Cloud‑enabled, yes—although they may not need all the functionality now.
But most IT leaders are not interested in adopting technology for technology's sake; nor do they plan to eliminate proven architectures, such as reliable blade servers, for alternative technologies. Instead, they want to refresh their existing infrastructure with more flexible, functional versions.
To better understand the needs of IT buyers as they prepare to compete in the digital era, Frost & Sullivan turned to the enterprises themselves. We looked at the results of our own annual survey of IT decision-makers, as well as independent research sponsored by HPE. We also spoke with providers and our own clients.
In this report, we reveal key considerations that are important to businesses as they revamp their data center infrastructure, and show how the HPE Synergy platform meets enterprise needs for an optimal infrastructure platform.
