Blade servers operate at power densities that exceed the power and cooling capacities of virtually all data centers. Installing blade servers in an existing data center creates a bewildering set of challenges and options.
There’s little question that server virtualization is the single biggest game-changing trend in IT today. It’s not hard to see why: Driving down costs and increasing IT agility are powerful reasons for going virtual.
Today’s storage bears little resemblance to the storage of the past. Modern storage environments are dynamic and complex, made up of heterogeneous components that represent a variety of vendor platforms.
Energy consumption in data centers has been steadily and dramatically increasing. Many data centers worldwide will have insufficient power and cooling capacity to meet the demands of high-density equipment.
In this white paper, we’ll look at five basics that should be considered in any data center virtualization project: planning, balancing the various hardware components, sizing the storage properly, managing capacity, and automation.

Backing up servers and workstations to tape can be a cumbersome process, and restoring data from tape even more so. While backing up to disk-based storage is faster and easier, and probably more reliable, it also can be more expensive.
