At this time of year many data center operators are thinking about what their data center should look like a few years down the road. Most would like their data center to be flexible, efficient, and easier to manage and scale. Using less power and space would be ideal as well. This latest white paper from HP, available in the Data Center Knowledge White Paper Library discusses ways to transform your data center and form the foundation for future growth.
In a perfect world, IT professionals would like to be able to grow their data centers organically, adding just the right amount of resources at the right time to support demands for new applications, increased data storage, higher power consumption and all of the other challenges that go into building a successful data center.

This can and should be an evolutionary process. This white paper outlines stages for a successful data center transformation. Click here to download this white paper.
