The data center has become a dynamic environment over the years. It can be a place where resources are centrally managed, readily automated and efficiently maintained. However, when you are operating a data center that hasn’t changed much over the last 15 years, a dynamic data center might seem unattainable.

To cross the bridge from an old data center to a new one means creating a new, holistic approach to the data center. IT professionals will have to take a closer look at things like:

  • Data Center dynamics
  • Cost management
  • Centralized control
  • Quicker response
  • Automated operations
  • Performance enhancements
  • Risk mitigation

It isn’t easy to bridge the gap in the data center, but it is worth it. Do you believe that this list is ripe and examining it closer will help IT professionals create a dynamic data center? Or do you think this list is hype and there is a better way to create a dynamic data center?
