  5. 5. We commissioned a data center study of 308 clients to determinethe current operational efficiency of data centers around the world.IBM Global Data Center Study Broad survey covering server, storage, network data center facility and data center operations Detailed execution questions going deep into availability, cost efficiencies and governance One-in-five, or 21%, of clients have highly efficient data centers; allocating 50% more of their IT budget to new projects. How much of your IT budget is spent on: Most efficient data centers Maintaining New projects existing infrastructure Optimize the IT and facilities assets to maximizeBasic 35% capacity and availabilitydatacenters Design for flexibility to support changing business 65% needsStrategic 53% Use automation tools to improve service levelsdata and availabilitycenters 47% Have a plan that aligns with the business goalsSource: IBM Global Data Center Study (2012 April) and keep it current5 © 2012 IBM Corporation
  6. 6. The data center study highlights three critical server implications forhighly efficient data centers. Virtualization and Leaders have accelerated virtualization and Standardization standardization to improve operational efficiency. Leaders use automation and self-service portal to Automation manage availability and speed of providing services. Have a plan and Leaders are faster to adopt the latest technology and keep it current have a backup plan in the event of disaster.6 © 2012 IBM Corporation
