Download By applying template-based provisioning, IT infrastructure can be configured to deliver services as needed, and projects with disparate and out-of-sync computing requirements can share infrastructure. As a result, operators can improve responsiveness to business demands through rapid service deployment and, at the same time, reduce overhead associated with power, cooling, floor space, and licensing. More significantly, IT organizations can achieve up to a 10:1 time savings in administration, the largest and fastest-growing cost in the data center today. Unified computing delivers these capabilities, and can be combined with virtualization to provide the flexibility and control required to achieve dynamic data center operations.
