1ZDE Survey Shows Cost/Power Savings Main Motivators for Data Center Upgrades
IT managers and CIOs who fret that a server or data center consolidation project might cause problems with application performance probably are worrying for nothing. Eighty-seven percent of those surveyed doing data center consolidations reported little or no impact on the company’s application performance as a result of the project; 86 percent reported the same thing regarding server consolidation.
It’s a fact that a healthy number of data center managers and CIOs are concerned about the possible effects of the recession on consolidation projects, whether they are pre-budgeted or not. Thirty-eight percent of those queried believe that such efforts could be suspended/halted or decreased slightly due to the downturn; 28 percent of server consolidation-project managers believe the same thing.
