Big dreams don’t have to come with big risks

Six reasons why you need a Virtual Data Centre to facilitate ambitious growth plans Everyone dreams of success and, in business that usually means expansion, growth and lots of new customers. But in business, big dreams also often come with a big price tag in terms of IT infrastructure which can quickly turn into a nightmare if anticipated growth does not keep up with costs. The thought of having to commit to buying warehouses of servers, storage and the accompanying network capacity as a business looks to expand is even harder to forecast in today's unpredictable market, and can be costly if you get it wrong. Many organisations have to live with this risk when strong business ambitions anticipate huge demands in additional compute and storage capacity, yet the cost of acquiring the assets can quickly become a drain if the business fails to grow as projected. But,... (more)

Worldwide Server Shipments Decline: US Market Strong (what does that tell you?)

By Bob Gourley Gartner just released their overview of the worldwide server market reporting that worldwide server shipments declined a surprising .7 percent year on year, while revenue declined 5 percent from the first quarter of 2012. Their report is available here. Key points: “The first quarter of 2013 was certainly not a strong period for the server market on a global level,” said Jeffrey Hewitt, research vice president at Gartner. “The only regions to post increases were Asia/Pacific and the United States, with Asia/Pacific showing the strongest growth with shipment and revenue increases of 7 percent and 1.7 percent, respectively. While these two regions grew in both shipments and revenue, it was not enough to offset the declines of the other geographies–all of which declined in server shipments and revenue for the quarter.” “x86 server shipment growth was fl...
