Only 10 percent of data centers in the Asian region are operating at their highest level of efficiency. A characteristic integral to helping organizations gain more efficient use of manpower for IT projects instead of maintenance.
Quoting key findings from an IDC survey, Simon Piff, associate vice president of enterprise infrastructure at IDC Asia-Pacific, said it was surprising 90 percent of data centers across Asian were not as efficient as they could be.
Incidentally, not one respondent ticked all the boxes associated with characteristics of a strategic data center, Piff noted. In particular, when it came to storage infrastructure management, everyone “performed badly”, he said.
This current lack of attention–and budget–to storage could mean a potential “train wreck” in the future, considering the tide of big data, the IDC analyst warned.
