Centralized management, flexibility and scalability are not just buzz words anymore; they are critical functions that will help optimize performance in the data center going forward, ensuring the IT environment is functioning at peak efficiency 24x7. CIOs planning a change in their data center should insist on the flexibility to deploy a wide variety of operating environments and hypervisor technologies, consider how many applications they can run per square foot of data center space, and determine how to create an environment that will scale with demand, managing SLAs during peak hours.

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.
