The increasing complexity of data centers and the massive growth of data are multiplying requirements for end-to-end management. These relentless trends also affect the resources needed to store, process and deliver data and services back to end users. Many data centers now face shortages in floor space, insufficient power and cooling, trade-offs between IT agility and vendor lock-in. They also have mounting complications and rising costs in managing disparate resource islands. To address these issues, organizations have rapidly adopted virtualization and service models that reduce costs, increase flexibility and improve their time to market.
