The emerging Participation Age is marked by radically increasing individual connectedness, and participation in a wide range of networked global communities. With ever-increasing demands from customers and partners, organizations need to deploy services more rapidly while retaining sufficient agility to take advantage of business opportunities when they occur. At the same time, high datacenter real estate costs and other pressures are driving many to increase density and raise the levels in order to simplify infrastructure and keep management costs reasonable. Even as organizations consolidate applications from multiple legacy platforms, however, they must assure predictable performance that meets service-level requirements - while delivering high levels of utilization.
