5. How will it help businesses achieve an efficient data centre?
Ninety per cent of organisations today are paying too much for storage as most IT departments buy 25 per cent more storage than they actually need. Optimising IT efficiency can save time, money, and valuable resources. The steps to achieving an efficient data centre would first involve evaluating the organisation’s current environment before looking at solutions that can be implemented to achieve an efficient data centre. However, many organisations are unsure of how to measure and monitor IT efficiency, much less drive necessary change.
Therefore, tools and resources found on the NetApp Data Fitness Center page allow organisations to gain an overview of their current IT environment and help them learn how to optimise that environment, and ultimately boost their bottom line.
It is basically about changing the economics of IT, shifting money away from the daily IT operations administration by minimising the time, resources, and effort of running today’s data centre. Having a more efficient and flexible IT infrastructure allows teams to spend money where they really want, while freeing up resources to innovate for the future.
