Ensuring the Agile Data Center

Click through for results from a survey of federal workers and data center leads on the agility of federal data centers, conducted by MeriTalk and sponsored by Symantec.

As worldwide data use escalates, so does our reliance on data centers. But what would happen if we took the data and data centers away? How valuable is real-time data access to federal employees, and what are federal IT departments doing to ensure reliability and security?

To examine these issues, MeriTalk surveyed federal field workers* and data center leads. They asked field workers about their reliance on information access, the impact of downtime, and the importance of the data center. They then asked the data center leads how well they can effectively deliver the right information resources to the right users – even in a business continuity scenario – and meet their SLAs.

The resulting Drive to Thrive report compares the two perspectives and offers advice to federal agencies on designing and implementing a truly agile data center. This slideshow features highlights from the survey conducted by MeriTalk and sponsored by Symantec.

*Field workers are defined as those who perform duties that require their physical presence in the field or otherwise away from a federal office facility more than 50 percent of the hours they work. This could include teleworking, field service, traveling, etc.
