Data centres are a foundational IT component for any organisations, enabling the use of an ever expanding range of applications and supporting increasing volumes of business critical data. However, they face a variety of taxing day-to-day challenges - including security, maintenance support and capacity - which leave resources with little time for innovation or transformation. Moving towards a more Autonomous Data Centre is the answer to these challenges. Through automation and enhancement, whether it’s part of an on premise or hybrid cloud model, businesses can free up time to innovate and develop, while the ADC largely takes care of itself - resolving issues, automatically adding capacity, optimising performance, self-healing or enhancing protection.
