  2. 2. High cost and poor utilization of traditional server and storageenvironments create the need to consider cloud solutions.Common challenges include: •  High costs to purchase, set up, configure and maintain server and storage environments •  Low utilization of servers and storage—particularly test environments •  Large numbers of servers dedicated to handling peak loads •  Scaling up to handle unexpected loads or new business initiatives •  Delays in new application deployments due to long deployment backlogs •  Non-mission-critical environments, such as test, seen as expensive and providing little real value—with budgets constantly being cut •  High risk of defects due to incorrectly configured server environments2 © 2012 IBM Corporation
