Efficiency is not about maxing out utilization, nor is it about achieving the highest possible MIPS, IOPS or any other standard metric. Technically, efficiency is about the ratio of useful work performed to the energy expended in doing that work. You want the greatest amount of output from your IT infrastructure for the lowest possible cost. Itís a bit like long-distance driving and working to achieve the highest possible miles per gallon through constant observation of time, speed and gas consumption in the face of varying traffic and weather conditions. Flooring the gas pedal is not always the best option. What can you do to optimize your converged infrastructure efficiency? While there are no 10-second, quick-fix answers, here are five strategies you can start implementing right now to bring your organization much closer to optimal efficiency and long-term cost savings.
