Intel is launching an eight-year process of data center consolidation, as Brently Davis, communications and stakeholder manager, blogs on IT@Intel. In this video podcast, he discusses the benefits — reducing costs, improving server and storage utilization], creating higher density & more energy-efficient data centers — and challenges, like impact on business partners, impact on different parts of the company, and costs. The strategy is known as “D.O.M.E.,” which stands for “Design, office, manufacturing and enterprise” computing. IT Architect Travis Broughton, who uses a parking lot to illustrate some of the challenges of virtualization in a recent post on IT@Intel, also weighs in on virtualization’s role in data center consolidation.
