Dynamic Datacenter

• Datacenter Management the path to Dynamic IT

• Microsoft Virtualization and Management
  • Unique value of Physical and Virtual Management from
    one common platform
  • Application (or in-guest) insight
  • Dynamic responses to changing workloads

• Coexistence

            Desktop                     Data Center
Requirements and Opportunities for
Datacenter Management

  • Service availability        • Operational budget is largest   • Virtualization remains
    driving IT investment         opportunity to reduce costs       driving force
  • Cloud computing and SaaS    • New infrastructure and          • Resource pooling increases
    increasing expectations       upgrades tax resources            reliability and performance
  • Heterogeneous environment   • Cost of compliance              • Back up and recovery
    adds complexity               continues to rise                 infrastructure remains expensive
Cost Reduction Via Systems Management is a
Real Opportunity in the Datacenter
