 What makes most sense for your data center when it’s time to handle larger and more complex workloads? Do you scale up or scale out? What are some of the parameters you need to know to make the right decision? How far do you scale?  What adjustments do you make to your compute and power loads due to the scale?  Do you scale the entire workload or keep some of the parts centralized?  Do you need a chief data officer and how does this incorporate into DR, security and other plans?

In this Leaders Lab, attendees will work with our expert advisor to discover real-world solutions for their individual needs and then collaborate on an industry whitepaper that outlines recommended best practices. Attendees will determine how to decide if a scale-out approach with a large number of smaller nodes is needed, or whether a scale-up approach might be a better fit in a virtual server consolidation design that can rely on fewer physical servers. In today’s fast-paced business environment, it’s important to know all the information ahead of time to make an informed decision.
