Converged Technology Group Asks CIOs: Is Your Data Center Operating at Peak Performance?

Managed Services Partner to Host a Live Event to Help New York Companies Explore Data Center Optimization Solutions, Strategies

ISLANDIA, NY, March 11, 2015 – When the concept of virtualization was first introduced and enterprise organizations were able to exchange dozens of physical servers for just a handful of virtual servers in their data centers, scores of IT pros saw the immediate cost savings that could be had and jumped on the proverbial bandwagon. But the savings don’t have to stop there. According to Converged Technology Group (www.convergedtechgroup.com), an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, optimization of the virtual data center can provide organizations significant incremental savings, particularly when the right combination of technologies is deployed.

“Server consolidation was just the beginning of a multi-phase data center optimization strategy,” says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group. “Most IT pros today will admit they’re still struggling with virtual sprawl, under-performing virtual machines and overprovisioned machines that are consuming more capacity than is necessary. As corporate demands require a shift from cap-ex to op-ex thinking, enterprise customers are realizing they need to re-examine both their physical and virtual data centers to see how they can better manage both private and public cloud consumption to their advantage, improving business-critical application performance and reducing both costs and the risk of downtime in the process. That’s what data center optimization is about, and it’s something every IT pro should have on their agenda for 2015.”
