Enterprise data centers are undergoing a transformation driven by the need to reduce operating costs and increase performance. This can be in direct conflict with strategic business requirements reflected on the data center to increase the ability to adapt to rapid market changes. Data center growth and systems turnover driven by events such as consolidation, disaster recovery, application growth and digital data growth, increase data center cost and complexity. New technology solutions such as server virtualization, storage area networks (SANs), 10 Gigabit Ethernet and InfiniBand are being deployed throughout the data center to address business needs and meet data center requirements of reducing operating costs and increasing performance.
