Straggler hardware, legacy apps and their antiquated operating systems exist in astonishing numbers within every organization. Almost every data center that’s five to 10 years old deals with systems that waste energy and cost many times more to operate than they may be worth. Creating sun-setting technology roadmaps for removing, replacing or upgrading these apps and hardware is the key.

For most organizations, the data center represents the heart of their technology infrastructure. And just like the hearts of the staffers working there, the data center requires a certain amount of exercise to keep it strong, healthy and performing at peak condition. To help IT professionals improve the performance of today’s data center in their organizations, Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, has developed a checklist of the “Fast Five Ways to a High-Efficiency Data Center” along with a microsite devoted to discussing the best practices and technologies involved.

According to Gartner analysts Rakesh Kumar and Lydia Leong, “Demand for business agility is pushing organizations toward data center solutions that have greater flexibility, enabling them to expand or contract their data centers according to business needs.”

“We recommend that IT leaders focus on specific improvements they can make within their existing data centers that can yield the greatest technological impact in their organizations,” says Bob Mobach, practice director, data centers, for Logicalis.
