Data centers today are not as efficient as they could be. In fact, studies have shown that the average utilization of a Windows server alone during normal business hours is under 10 percent and the average utilization during peak hours is under 15 percent.

To help CIOs navigate the sea of emerging “smart” product families, Logicalis has identified four key ways to increase performance and ROI in the data center.
