Data Center Automation
Data center automation is simply good business. It streamlines operations. It improves flexibility, allowing your business to react quickly to changing market conditions. And it frees up resources from routine tasks, which allows them to focus on projects that support business objectives and improve the bottom line.
Data Center Automation Transforms Enterprises
Data center automation is a key component of a successful cloud computing strategy. Cloud computing helps organizations keep pace with rapidly changing demands internally and externally through data center consolidation, resource pooling, virtualization, and automation.
Cloud applications place demands on the infrastructure in new ways. In these environments, the infrastructure must become application aware and flexible to support rapid application instantiation and migration. And this application centric infrastructure must also support secure multi-tenancy, another key feature of cloud computing.
Building, configuring, and managing these environments generally mean reliance on multiple vendors, which makes data center automation difficult at best. Incompatibility issues among devices and software persist, resulting in downtime and higher overhead costs. Legacy systems are often not designed for complex cloud models and the rapid setup and removal of services in physical and virtual resources. So data center transformation can be labor intensive and expensive when companies decide to migrate to cloud environments.
