Seven Ways to Reduce Data Center Complexity
What Is This White Paper About?
Along with the new technology and applications emerging over the past several years—IoT, IT/OT convergence, virtualization, increased security requirements, edge computing and the
cloud, for example—comes more data center complexity
As technology and its usage become more complicated, it’s not unusual for any complex project, let alone data center infrastructure, to become more complex and convoluted as well.
Complexity arises when products, tools and resources not designed to work together are used to support a network. This mix-and-match approach can occur for a variety of reasons, but it often happens because today’s technology demands require data center managers to move quickly. There often appears not enough time to be practical, do things the “right way” or think through long-term ramifications.
