Virtualization and Data Center Consolidation
Intel is launching an eight-year process of data center consolidation, as Brently Davis, communications and stakeholder manager, blogs on IT@Intel.

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.
