Intel published this interesting paper on summer 2005, republished today by Bitpipe:
Underutilization of computing power can be costly. Studies show that for many companies, their IT infrastructure investment has yet to achieve the financial objectives anticipated or provide the expected boost in corporate productivity. A key objective of business is to maximize productivity while minimizing expense, yet many are failing to fully utilize their IT resources. Or they have overlooked the under-tapped capabilities they already have on the racks in their data center. As a result, computing power is wasted because servers are under-utilized.
This white paper explains how to:
- Better utilize resources in your data center
- Avoid unnecessary infrastructure expansion
- Improve network reliability and server utilization
- Better manage IT expenses
