7 Steps to Reduce Data Center Complexity

Download our 7 Steps to Reduce Data Center Complexity White Paper

What Is This White Paper About?

Data center complexity is almost inherent with the new technology and applications that have emerged in the past 10 years: IoT and convergence, virtualization, increased security requirements, mobile computing and the cloud, to name just a few. Pressure on data center IT operators continues to increase as the number of business-critical applications grows rapidly, adding more complexity.

The more complex a data center is, the more difficult it can be to ensure efficiency – not only of the systems and equipment, but of the IT staff as well. It can be hard to implement new technology and strategic initiatives to move your business and data center forward when you’re stuck in reactive mode, dealing with problems that can be traced back to data center complexity.

Topics covered in the White Paper:

  • Emphasize Standardization
  • Streamline Vendors
  • Select Products Engineered to Work Together
  • Easy Installation and Maintenance Requirements
  • Safeguard Against Complexity “Seepage”
  • Find Products that Serve More than One Purpose
