Thomas and the rest of the team have been freed to work on new projects in what he estimates is a twentyfold increase in productivity. Time saved is now being directed toward expanding the internal team’s expertise and experience with other technologies and applications, as well as launching new initiatives. Consequently, PLAZAMEDIA service provisioning and change management are five to 10 times faster than before, while server decommissioning can be accomplished at least 50 percent faster. Increased administrative efficiency has freed IT staff to concentrate on more strategic issues.

Average 78% Reduction in Cabling with an Average Cost Savings of 68% Based on 34 and 10 customer case studies, respectively “Where we previously needed 80 cables, we now only need eight: a reduction by the factor of ten. This not only cuts down the investment required, it also simplifies scalability. Installation and maintenance work are also substantially reduced.” UCS has cut the number of cables required by more than 60 percent Almaviva Tele Sistemi Ferroviari - "Cabling costs alone have dropped by about 70 percent in the new data center, a significant figure because they used to represent up to 30 percent of each new deployment."

So far, we’ve seen a 10 percent reduction in power usage, and we expect the solution to pay for itself within 12 months.” “The simplified design of the Cisco UCS Servers improves airflow efficiency and can reduce the number of components that need to be powered and cooled by more than 50 percent compared to traditional blade server environments.” Server utilization has increased by 40 percent while data space, power, and cooling have been reduced by the same amount Provisioning Infrastructure and Cabling Real World TCO Examples Ongoing Administration Servers Power and Cooling System Management
