Today’s data center managers have a lot on their plate. They’re responsible for more servers and storage than ever, and have to react quickly to frequent changes in demand for service. Administration and management solutions play a crucial role in helping sysadmins face these challenges.
Gartner refers to the four biggest trends that currently dominate the world of IT as The Nexus of Forces : mobile, social, cloud, and big data. Each of them holds out a great deal of promise for business owners. Mobile applications and social media provide companies with direct access to customers. Cloud services ensure that the business can always access its data and applications efficiently. Big data provides new insights into a company’s business processes and customer buying behavior. Companies that want to stay on the cutting edge of their industry would do well to immerse themselves in these technologies, and that means their data center must also be up to the task.
