Uptime Institute’s Steve Carter was quoted last week in a great article in Government Computer News regarding data center consolidation projects in the government sector.
Consolidation and IT optimization can potentially generate a return of $2 for every $1 invested over a 5-year span, Carter said. Technologies such as virtualization and practices gleaned from previous projects can help guide consolidation and move agencies toward those kinds of returns, he noted.
“But it does take upfront seed money,” Carter said. “In a tight budget time, that is the real crux of the issue. It’s just a matter of obtaining the funding and the political will to make that happen.”
