In a recent survey of the Data Center Knowledge audience we learned that 63% of you are planning to expand your current data center or build a new data center. That is why you will want to read this white paper from Dell on Shared Infrastructure: Scale-Out Advantages and Effects on TCO and learn how systems like these have the potential to greatly reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for large data center deployments.

Shared infrastructure system is defined as any system that pools resources in a single chassis and spreads them among independent server nodes within that same chassis to achieve optimized performance. The advantages of a shared infrastructure system are found in three main areas: power efficiency, thermal efficiency, and compute density. Each of these three areas effect the cost of building and maintaining your data center, which is why the benefits of shared infrastructure can really help the bottom line.

Regardless of whether you operate your own data center or are using a colocation model, shared infrastructure offers power and server density advantages which can drive down overall cost down. Yet, the areas where shared infrastructure can really shine is in scale-out environments. This white paper is very informative and there is no registration required. Click here to read more.
