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.

“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.
