10 Best Practices for Spring Cleaning Your Data Center
by Chris Preimesberger
Just as we step back now and then to deep clean, update and purge unneeded items from our residences, so also we should do with data centers of any size. As the pace of change in business continues to accelerate, the pressure to transform data centers and keep them running optimally remains high. Enterprises are now demanding that their IT infrastructures enable rapid and efficient high-quality services. Information is quickly becoming an organization's most valuable asset—and often among its most costly. Quickly storing, securing, accessing and analyzing business information can mean the difference between business success and failure. If a data center is not finely tuned, with plenty of storage, networking and computing capacity, it is not optimized for scalable workloads. In this eWEEK slide show, put together with eWEEK reporting and industry perspective from Mark Blackburn, CIO and co-founder of U.K.-based IT software automation provider 1E, you'll get a set of best practices you can use today on how to "spring clean" your IT system.
