  2. 2. DELIVERMORE WITH LESSThe economic downturn changed the dynamics of thebusiness world. It shifted the measure of success, drivingcompanies to rethink how they deliver services. Therecession saw the chief information officers (CIOs) combatwith slashed budgets and issues such as availability offinance, changing risk requirements, market adaptability,re-orientation of business models, changing customerdemands, employee downsizing and galvanizing existingones to deliver more efficiently. The pressure is to delivermore with less. With this mandate, there is a need to simplifyIT Infrastructure, reduce overhead costs and align IT withemerging and frequently changing business needs. CHANGING DYNAMICS OF DATA CENTERS Data center is the heart of IT Infrastructure and a major portion of CIO’s IT budget goes in building, managing and operating company’s data center(s). With dynamic business requirement and rapid data growth the role of an optimized data center is being felt by CIOs. While CIOs are looking to optimize cost by reducing complexity and enhancing data center efficiency, there is a constant desire for business growth in an industry governed and secured environment. Adaptability, application availability Changing and flexibility are the key parameters to judge the current data center stage and build a comprehensive Dynamics strategy for future. of Data Center
  3. 3. SIGNIFICANCE of G3 DATA CENTERS With a continuous pressure of doing more with less and optimizing the data center environment to be more responsive, consolidated and secured; CIOs need to strive for G3 data centers. A G3 data center is aligned to CIOs needs of Green, Growth and Governance and results in new edge data center with reduced cost and enhanced performance. HCL and EMC have realized that G3 data centers will help CIOs in three major areas – how to reduce carbon foot prints and energy expenditure by adopting for Green IT; how to govern and build a resilient data center and thus a robust IT infrastructure; how to transform data center environment resulting in high business growth.GREENWith rising energy costs, a slow down in the economy and social pressures to go green; CIOs must focus onhow much energy they are consuming. A it’s a fact that IT is power-hungry, there has never been a morecompelling time to cut both the costs of running your IT and your carbon footprint. Whether it’s the powersupporting IT Infrastructure (30-40% of total DC power) or the power supporting Physical Infrastructure(60-70% of total DC power); CIOs need to relook the consumption and redefine Green IT strategy.GOVERNACEChanging industry regulations, business norms, data security threats and need for high business availablyhave redefined the need for data center governance. Enterprise risk is pervasive - from natural catastrophesto internal and external threats, from audits to legal requests and government regulations.
