IT transformation contributing to significant changes in data centers

When I look back at my time as a child, I find the way I looked at the world almost laughable. When you're a kid there are just so many things about the world you don't understand that it can be difficult to make accurate judgments about what is going on around you. It's not that kids don't have valuable things to say, it's that their views are often limited by what they see. Sometimes, this gives them a clearer view of the world. Others, it leads to misconceptions.

In the enterprise sector, many businesses have been children from an IT perspective. During the past few decades, technology has slowly evolved from large mainframes to the personal computer era to the internet. As the world embarks on a new era led by the cloud and advanced web services, the enterprise sector as a whole has reached a point where it may have a more mature, adult view of the role of technology.

The limitations of technology in the past created an environment in which companies could not necessarily see its full potential, but some visionaries saw glimpses of how things worked and developed ideas that carried businesses to the future. Now, IT is beginning to transform operations.

According to a recent Data Center Knowledge report, the transformation of IT systems in recent years is contributing to major changes in the data center sector.

Considering IT transformation
The news source explained that one of the major changes coming in 2013 is the realization of IT transformation. IT will shift from its past role as a facilitator and emerge as a mission-critical element of operations. This will result in major changes in the data center because IT systems have to be reliable enough and delivered efficiently enough that they not only sustain operations, but also enable better functionality.

Within this dynamic, console management systems can play a major role in improving data center functionality. Console servers provide IT with the ability to control almost every facet of the data center remotely, providing functionality that improves operational efficiency and reliability. As a result, console management can provide the foundation for a data center that supports mission-critical data center systems.

Perle’s wide range of 1 to 48 port Perle Console Servers provide data center managers and network administrators with secure remote management of any device with a serial console port. Plus, they are the only truly fault tolerant Console Servers on the market with the advanced security functionality needed to easily perform secure remote data center management and out-of-band management of IT assets from anywhere in the world.
