From a capital and labor-intensive
infrastructure...

...to a utility delivered infrastructure.

The Problem

100% of employees in an enterprise are now
users of IT infrastructure, up from 20% in 1980,
thanks to the widespread move to the
Client / Server model.

IT capex as a percentage of US enterprise capex
has grown from <10% to >40% at the same time.

Yup... more problems.

• Availability of IT systems has decreased from
99.999% to 99.9% during the period.

• 85% of IT opex is spent on maintenance.

• Regulatory and other pressures have made
security a business critical need while overall
system security has decreased substantially.

• Less than 50% of capacity deployed is actually used.

Flavor #2.5: Server Consolidation
