Executive Summary

Data centers are at a crossroad. Massive data growth, tough economic conditions, and physical data center limitations (power, heat, space) are exerting extreme pressure on traditional IT infrastructures. Additionally, many companies seek to deploy IT architectures that support new, service-based business models. Finding ways to take cost, complexity, and associated business risk out of the data center without sacrificing service levels and while maximizing the potential of virtualization has become a major objective for almost every enterprise. From an IT standpoint, cloud computing promises to deliver elastic scalability, pay-as-grow efficiency, and a predictable cost structure. On the business side, these capabilities can help turn capital expenses into operating expenses and increase productivity and innovation. Technological maturity is making workable cloud solutions both possible and affordable.
