The countdown has already started.— Big changes are coming to the datacenter. – Will you and your team be ready?
Once upon a time, there was a large global company that asked several pointed questions: Are our datacenters helping us innovate, or are they standing in the way of our success? Are we facing the challenges regarding power, cooling, cabling and space in the best way possible? Could we reduce capital and operating expenses? Are we doing the right thing by keeping our datacenters spread across dozens of countries -- or should we consolidate?
There’s a Japanese proverb that says, “When you have completed 95 percent of the journey, you are only half way there.” I’ve been out talking to data center managers lately; many of them are feeling the same way.
