This free white paper from the experts at IDC posits solutions to the key problems posed by data center crowding: geometrically growing power and cooling costs; the spiraling cost of management; and the sheer number of server footprints. Learn how blade servers can help by drastically cutting energy costs, even over traditional rack-optimized servers-letting data centers surpass their old power and cooling "ceilings" while reducing overhead and staying green; cutting down on deployment time, repairs, monitoring, and management-by enabling a single point of management for all blades inside the same chassis; minimizing real estate requirements with a space-saving design; and even slashing operational costs by virtually eliminating unplanned downtime, with high availability and redundancy to minimize processing interruptions. Blade server architecture is optimized for the future of business. Download this free IDC white paper and discover what it can do for yours.
