Transforming the Data Center for Immediate Cost Savings

Under increasing budget pressures, federal agencies must find ways to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their data center operations. Consolidating centers and equipment is a good first step, but it is not enough. To achieve the kind of savings they need, agencies must take a new approach to IT management. That approach begins with virtualization. In this webcast, you will learn how to leverage the full capabilities of virtualization by adopting a converged infrastructure that combines the compute (server) tier and the storage tier into a single system.
