To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.

Old Dutch Foods, known for its broad selection of snack foods in the midwest United States and Canada, was struggling to get the right products to the right places at the right time. Its data center included outdated physical servers, and batch processing meant that inventory would not be updated until the end of the day as opposed to real time. In addition, recovering from power outages and disk failures could frequently take up to two weeks. To modernize its data center, Old Dutch Foods invested in EMC Converged Infrastructure. The fast and easy deployment of two VCE VBlock® systems running JD Edwards, MS Exchange, mobile device apps, and operation of a backup site with replicated applications and data. This enhanced the IT department's responsiveness to the business, allowed them to shift to real-time inventory, and reduced CapEx and OpEx costs. Operations were simplified by reducing person-hours needed for infrastructure maintenance by 75 percent.

In real estate, the most important factor is location, location, location! Your services are not quite as sensitive to the physical position of your technology, but location certainly can be a pivotal factor in optimizing your service design and service delivery. Ideally, location shouldn’t matter; however, it does have an e?ect on customer experience. When technology services were simpler, location was largely irrelevant, but now the complexity of new services demands a strategy more in line with your BT agenda than your former IT agenda. The e?ects of regulatory, cost, risk, and performance factors will vary based on the physical location of your technology resources. Colocation providers, cloud service providers, and even traditional hosting services o?er plenty of evolving options to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals balance these factors to optimize service design and delivery.

Nobody can afford to lose data. But managing the backup and recovery of data and services in far-flung locations can present many logistical and technology challenges that add complexity, expense, and risk. A new branch converged infrastructure approach allows IT to project virtual servers and data to the edge, providing for local access and performance while data is actually stored in centralized data centers. IT can now protect data centrally and restore branch operations in a matter of minutes versus days.

"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands. Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."
