IDC Whitepaper - Time for Change: Optimizing Datacenter Infrastructure with Technology Refresh
By Javier Puerta-Oracle on Jan 30, 2013
The report is based on in-depth interviews with seven enterprises that have recently worked with Oracle to refresh and optimize their data center infrastructure for an average three-year ROI of 267% and a payback in 13 months.
By consolidating and virtualizing their UNIX server and storage environments, IDC found these organizations were able to realize the following benefits:
- Gain a more powerful infrastructure that delivers an aggregate financial benefit of $91,466 per 100 end users;
- Optimize IT staff support by enabling them to more proactively manage IT infrastructure and reduce time spent responding to problems and architecture complexities;
- Quantify real end user productivity gains derived from higher service levels and faster response times;
- Mitigate the risks associated with service downtime by up to 99%; enabling more productive business operations.
