Today, enterprises are not just concerned about hosting and managing the storage of their expanding volumes of data. They are also concerned about the technology behind such storage management, the associated costs, management issues, and technology refresh cycles. In an increasingly complex IT environment, data centres are expected to operate efficiently despite the use of various cost-containment strategies. Organizations are no longer influenced by the perception that more features means more cost commitments. Rather, they seek solutions that provide the best at manageable cost levels. By leveraging various technologies and processes, organizations can better protect information and applications, enhance data centre service levels, improve storage and server utilisation, manage physical and virtual environments, and drive down capital and operational costs.
Enterprises are constantly looking at ways to boost the efficiency of their data centres while keeping costs under control. Besides maximising resources, IT organizations are also looking at ways to implement “green IT” practices and business initiatives in their data centre environment. Typically, an organization faces the following challenges:
• Driving capital and operational costs down in building and maintaining a resilient data centre infrastructure
• Meeting high service availability – 24x7 always “open” IT environment
• Maintaining a multi-discipline IT team to ensure optimised IT operations
• Adoption of industry best practices such as ITIL to ensure quality IT operations
• Disaster recovery plans for business continuity
While these issues seem obvious, organizations face difficulty in finding the right expertise to ensure that they are properly addressed. Working with vendors who have vast experiences in managing and hosting data centres is one way to solve these troubles.
