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. But, according to Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, it is possible to get more than 70 percent utilization from servers and storage today with smart technologies that automatically adapt to a company’s unique needs and usage requirements. 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.
