Now could be the time to generate worthwhile operating savings that could fund end-of-life equipment replacement. And conditions could be right to make the change faster and with less risk.

Numerous organizations constructed data centers in the early 2000's. As we look at those data centers today, we find that many are significantly underutilized due to a number of factors. This presentation reviews how we arrived at this situation and walks through a right-sizing scenario and the associated economics. The presentation objective is to provide ideas that attendees may be able to leverage with their own right-sizing efforts.
