CIO Challenge: Developing A Virtual Strategy to Meet New Business Demands

Sep 14, 2011

CIOs today are challenged with supporting more revenue-generating projects without adequate resources to expand or move data centers. Older servers often lack the power efficiency necessary to keep energy costs down, the intelligence to automatically swap virtual workloads, and the ability to scale up and down as needed. As a result CIOs and their IT teams waste time and budgets trying to work around the limitations of out-of-date resources which can also delay mission-critical projects and affect user productivity.

This paper highlights results from CIO Magazines "2011 State of the CIO Survey" and explains how open source platforms can deliver optimal performance and a more scalable environment better suited for a large enterprise’s real-time business needs.
