More than 70 percent of IT budgets are spent on operations and maintenance.3 System administrators face extraordinary demands as they plan IT infrastructures. But they also need to deploy assets to meet current needs and optimize them for maximum performance. More and more organizations are virtualizing their IT environments, and administrators face the daunting task of monitoring a complex infrastructure and fixing problems as they arise. These tasks may be complicated by multiple, non-integrated tools that offer limited automation and the explosion of data that is stressing limited resources—budget, people, power, storage capacity and floor space.
To meet today’s complex and ever-changing business demands, you need a solid base of compute, storage, networking and software resources that is simple to deploy and can quickly and automatically adapt to changing conditions.
