Impact of Cloud Computing on the Datacenter Identified by Computacenter
LONDON, Jan 17, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Computacenter has identified the impact of cloud computing on the
datacenter. According to the company, cloud computing will infiltrate
every organisation whether it's with the CIO's approval or not.
A staggering 98.9% of organisations interviewed claimed to use at
least one cloud service.
The datacenter needs to continually adapt to cope with planned and
unplanned demands from the business, an issue which has intensified
with huge virtualisation sprawl and the expectations of cloud
With off-premise options snapping at the heels of the corporate data
centre, IT departments need to ensure their on-premise services meet
current and future business needs. And that means lower costs,
greater agility and higher availability.
Computacenter helps organisations find the best-fit, best-value
solutions and strategies to make their datacenter more predictable,
sustainable and affordable.
Cloud brings key benefits set to transform the way IT is consumed
within the enterprise, including cost, flexibility and agility. The
challenge for most organisations is maintaining control in the face
of the increasing consumerisation of IT, whereby staff use their own
IT in preference to corporate devices and applications. Cloud gains
much of its efficiency through very high utilisation, with many cloud
services providers' datacenters running at 50% or higher. In
contrast, many enterprises run their datacenters at 10% utilisation
Computacenter has developed end-to-end solutions to datacenter
transformation, its expertise and knowledge provides a perfect fit
for a partnership that will help organisations drive outcomes in
virtualisation, automation and the pathway to cloud.
IDC research explains how not using cloud is the greatest risk to
-- 90 percent of corporate datacenter capacity goes unused
-- 98.9 percent of organisations now use at least one cloud service
-- 23 percent of organisations have multiple cloud services in full-scale
-- 8 out of 10 employees use consumer cloud services to fill the
corporate IT gap
