Most companies are considering server consolidation.
While many companies aim to create a consolidation strategy that eliminates unnecessary hardware, software and applications, few are able to implement successfully.
Server consolidation makes financial sense.
Distributed costs of maintenance and support are decreased across the enterprise as the site and server numbers decrease, while increasing server power.
Server consolidation allows companies to implement enhanced IT infrastructures that can support expansion without increasing IT staff.
Diminishing the number of servers may be a priority-- putting
your data at risk is not. Consolidation decreases issues
associated with data replication and often provides for
a smoother implementation of disaster recovery initiatives,
which ensures your data is available as fast as you need
it. Not only does it reduce cost of ownership, it simplifies
administration through system standardization.
