Business Challenge

Data Centers in the Federal Government are being consolidated in significant numbers to meet the requirements of the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI). But as the focus on consolidation starts to draw down as agencies approach the 2015 deadline, more emphasis is placed on optimization—getting more from the Data Center than ever.

Reducing costs and footprint, as well as ideal energy consumption, are becoming more of a focus moving forward to maximize existing data centers. This is where an optimal data center environment becomes critical. As the need to share data across agencies grows, controlling the proliferation of Big Data and managing information assets with better tracking and preservation methods is imperative.

INDUSTRY FACT: Agencies face growth pressures in the data center; 52% of agencies must add capacity/bandwidth/storage to improve data center agility. They must address this in a thoughtful way, as $20 Billion is wasted annually due to a lack of consolidation

How This Affects You...

  • Managing information assets becomes more important as agencies get to critical mass on data center footprint
  • As data center performance is measured with more scrutinized parameters as part of ROI expectations, the right environment becomes critical
  • As data continues to grow, optimizing data centers will become a priority to keep up

What If You Could...

  • Meet the strictest standards for compliance and security requirements
  • Focus your resources on investments and strategies with the highest return
  • Ensure your data center environment can improve energy consumption and reduce footprint
  • Deliver better services at lower costs and more efficiently
  • Track assets more effectively than your current environment
