This new White Paper, from leading solutions and innovation provider Panduit, brings fresh insight into the central issues facing data center planners both for initial “build” and for future growth, with valuable “real life” examples drawn from actual customer case studies.
Download now to understand how best to:
• Avoid capacity fragmentation: identify areas of “lost” or “stranded” capacity
• Establish “best fits” for capacity in your center
• Maintain equilibrium between the four critical elements of any effective data center management plan
• Implement proactive planning: speed decision-making and deployment
• Optimize existing resources
• Improve data center operations and efficiency
• Reduce OPEX
• Avoid unnecessary CAPEX by extending the life of your center.

What does a digital transformation look like? It varies from organization to organization, of course, since they have invested in countless systems and applications over the years. Digital transformation consists of building new applications and next-generation architectures on today’s open standards, using on-demand resources. For many organizations, digital transformation also means optimizing existing systems and application resources – integrating, replacing, or abstracting key pieces of their infrastructures into services.
Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits.
Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server!
Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab

Flexible infrastructure choices and application architectures are changing the way that modern enterprises run their computing.
Enterprises have become application-centric, investing significant effort and resources on continuous delivery goals and DevOps
practices to achieve automation of routine IT and operations tasks. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity
and agility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications and updates.
Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.
