Optimizing Performance with Frequent Server Replacements at Midsize Companies
Servers are the backbone of modern IT infrastructure. They support the computational requirements of the entire application portfolio of an enterprise organization. However, their life span is finite. A new generation of servers performs much better than its predecessors. Still, is this outperformance worth it?
This white paper discusses the findings of a study commissioned by Dell Technologies and Intel. The study sought to determine the quantitative and qualitative impact of timely and delayed server infrastructure refreshes in midsize and enterprise organizations. For its analysis, IDC relied on empirical data obtained via in-depth interviews with 18 IT decision makers and a web survey of 707 IT practitioners and decision makers at midsize and large enterprises (as defined in terms of the number of employees) familiar with the impact of server replacements on server performance, server costs, IT support costs, and business operations.
