The economic downturn will force IT professionals to prioritize consolidation to reduce costs and initiatives that help the enterprise reduce risk by achieving regulatory compliance and securing sensitive data. To facilitate consolidation and cost reductions, IT will expand the use of server virtualization and take advantage of capacity optimization techniques in both production and backup environments.
