Think 2011 was a year of major changes in the data center? Just wait for 2011!
The adoption of new technologies will make data centers greener, more virtual, more able to connect to the cloud and more converged. While such changes offer data center customers such potential benefits as lower capital and operating costs, not to mention cutting back on space requirements, they will also force data center admins and their solution provider partners to invest in new skills to better run them even as businesses try to throttle back on spending.
Data centers are in for major change next year. Then again, one could have said that every year for the past 30 years.
