Executive Summary

Data center sprawl has been the enemy of IT innovation for far too long. Over the past 40 years, IT infrastructures have been built in a piecemeal fashion. With systems deployed for specific applications and connected in an ad hoc manner, most data centers today are a labyrinth of teams, tools, and processes. Monolithic, hard-wired systems require excessive manpower to operate and do not scale easily. When an urgent application need emerges, the solution is often to simply add more hardware. Over time, these practices have increased complexity and stifled flexibility. Most data center assets today are underutilized and straining business performance to the breaking point.
