Road Map to Data Center Optimization

When designing the strategic data center, one of the important design factors is the ability to add features into the data center without having to re-architect it. As the N1 Grid software continues to evolve the data center architecture plan must be flexible enough to enable the inclusion of these new products and technologies. The architecture plan is a road map, implemented in several phases.

Phased implementation enables the IT staff to concentrate on systems that ...
