The common phrase, “the more things change the more they remain the same” is true in the tech world, believe it or not. Think about the changing dynamic of the data center. What causes the same problems to occur – underfunded budgets, altering the status quo without vetting the consequences and procrastination?
It is these challenges that create the need for the cloud data center.
Changes in the data center require a high degree of planning, according to a Panduit report. The playing field has changed due to consolidation and virtualization. The importance of engineering a network and planning the architecture of the IT system, however, which includes the racks, servers and all the components that make up the physical environment, cannot be understated.
