Is your IT fully optimized?
Data Center Modernization Services is a consulting service that analyzes your data center or IT infrastructure, helping you plan, implement and transition to a more efficient infrastructure solution. Whether it’s in your own facilities or in HP leveraged data centers, we create a simplified and more agile IT environment that can respond to changing market conditions. When you look at your data center, do you see hundreds of servers, using countless kilowatt-hours of power, costing your company thousands? If so, your center may need a makeover. The average utilization rate of a server is only about 15 percent. But you don’t purchase a machine to only use 15 percent; you buy it to use 100 percent.
How many versions of software are you running? What are the licensing fees of these programs? If your data center is running on different platforms due to mergers or acquisitions, you need to increase cohesiveness. You must operate as one company and you want your systems to do the same.
HP Data Center Modernization Services analyzes IT infrastructures for efficiency of use and alignment with business goals. Analysis of both areas can result in substantial cost reduction and increased efficiency of operations for your enterprise. Data Center Modernization Services helps our hosting clients better align the goals of their IT department with those of the business. Through increased agility of the IT infrastructure, your IT department can support changes in business direction and strategy.
