Data centre capacity concerns CIOs

More than one-third of chief information officers believe that their data centers will be unable to meet the rapidly growing demand for business services and applications in two to five years, said HP today quoting a new research conducted on its behalf.

The study titled “HP 2008 Data Center Transformation Survey,” was conducted by Penn, Schoen and Berland, the technology company said.

To meet this growing demand, the company announced a set of products and services designed to help customers transform their data centers from a stand-alone collection of physical assets into a virtual and adaptive infrastructure.

These technology tools and strategies would address a company’s top data center initiatives such as energy efficiency, automation, virtualization, consolidation and business continuity, HP said.

“Today customers are facing multiple challenges — the explosion of data, a growing mobile workforce and the need for access to real-time information,” said Uday Kumaraswami, vice president, consulting and integration, HP services, technology solutions group, APJ. “HP is uniquely qualified to help CIOs dramatically change the way they create, manage and operate their data centers.”

HP infrastructure additions include new services such as HP critical facilities services, data center consolidation services, data center virtualization services and a ProLiant server.

The firm also announced release of HP Operations Orchestration Enhancements that will enable companies extend comprehensive automation across all physical and virtual infrastructures by automating manual and error prone processes across clients, applications, servers, networks, and storage.
