Business requirements are changing continuously which drives change in the data center. The data center is meant to be a flexible, blank slate upon which IT services are quickly built, dismantled and reconfigured continuously to enable business agility. But how agile is your data center? Can you quantify the cost and risk of changing the data center roadmap to accommodate business needs? Are you able to factor into business decisions the risks from change?
In this presentation learn about a new data center performance/risk score called “ACE” (Availability, Capacity and Efficiency) that:
– quantifies the risk and cost of change in the data center
– consolidates tracking of three interrelated performance metrics that together capture the very purpose of the data center
– also learn how ACE calculations are made practical by computer modeling of the physical data center
