Tips on Reducing Cost with Data Center Modernization

Home > Blog > Blade Servers > Tips on Reducing Cost with Data Center Modernization

According to a 2016 study by the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data center outage has increased 38% from 2010 to today, with the cost being $505,502 in 2010 up to $740,357 today. When downtime–and the resulting costs–can’t be tolerated, but IT budgets are shrinking, IT departments need to quickly find a solution without any additional compromise.

One way to help reduce IT costs is to modernize your data center through by HP ProLiant Servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors. This will help reduce costs while also serving to:

  • Keep data secure
  • Update your core applications
  • Overcome big data challenges
  • Move towards a hybrid infrastructure

Whether you need a refresh to your infrastructure or a complete data center transformation to get your data center up to speed, Continental Resources (ConRes), partnering with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), has the proven compute and experience to make your journey successful.

Consider the Cloud

Many IT departments consider moving to the public cloud as an alternative to traditional data center architectures, but concerns about security and others gaining control of the assets that are held in the public cloud keep them from making the move. To alleviate these concerns, while also modernizing your data center, a private or hybrid cloud may be the better choice as the private cloud is on-site and under the sole control of the IT department itself.

Plus, by moving to the private cloud, an Aberdeen Group study found that you will reduce your IT costs by up to 40%, giving you further investment for new services to drive growth for your business. Further, by automating manual processes, you’ll reduce IT staff costs by up to 217% according to an ESG report.
