Alcatel-Lucent Data Center Transformation

Type:  Webinar

When Alcatel bought out Lucent at the end of 2006, the two companies had already begun planning data center consolidations of their own, but the merger changed all that. As it turns out, the merged company created a plan to consolidate 25 data centers and 125 server rooms down to six data centers and just a few server rooms. This change has presented challenges, especially in terms of arranging downtime and dealing with employees' attachment to their servers and applications, but the company is on pace to meet it’s goal of reducing IT operational cost by 25% over three years.
