The biggest changes you can move away from the traditional network architecture still on server and data center achieve. “Alone, the optimization of the cooling of server space can halve power consumption”, explains Dirk Sacay, is listed as a energy consultant in the IT field at the RKW Hessen. The changes are properly felt but only in a shift away from the traditional network architecture. Studies have shown that server as clients alike generally to no more than 30 percent of their capacity are utilised.
Large efficiency gains can then be achieved, if less bigger and more powerful computers meet these same tasks as it is today. Then the power consumption can be reduced even with the deployment of even greater computing power than today further. The watchwords for this development are about “cloud computing” virtualization and consolidation. Practically, they mean that more and more small and small server be abolished and as services and virtual machines in a large datacenter – transferred whose utilization is improved. For medium-sized companies, this means that a large part of their IT infrastructure in the future can outsource and hire rather than buy. Thus, the networks can be faster and more flexibly expand – on-demand. “Then’ so Dirk Sacay is a first picture of the IT future, most companies,” need only a quick data cable to the data center and so-called ‘thin clients’ with little more than the ability to screen display.” Result: A clear plus for the corporate and LCA.

There are three main criteria according to active sourcing: the first requirement is the understanding of the outsourcers to the sector concerned. So a bank should decide only for a provider who has worked in the financial services sector. Also, the performance profile of the providers must meet the needs of the customers. Would such a company outsource mainframe systems, the provider must be able to appropriate services available, without having to hire subcontractors to”, judge rain rivet.
