Symantec Corp. has announced that 79 percent of organizations globally report increasing complexity in the data center, according to the results of its 2012 State of the Data Center Survey. The survey highlights the underlying drivers of data center complexity, current impacts on the business, and the latest initiatives IT is adopting to mitigate the issues.
While the cause of data center complexity stems from a variety of factors, respondents identify implementing an information governance strategy as the main initiative being taken to address data center growing pains. The State of the Data Center findings emphasize the importance of taking steps to intelligently manage organizational resources to rein in operational costs and control information growth.
“The data center is transforming beyond recognition, with the introduction of new technologies into everyday business, and these changes can either act as a sail to catch the wind and accelerate growth, or an anchor holding organizations back,” said Anand Naik, Managing Director- Sales, India and SAARC, Symantec.
Organizations of all sizes, industries and regions report increasing complexity within the data center. According to the survey, data center complexity impacts all areas of computing, most notably security and infrastructure, as well as disaster recovery, storage and compliance. Indian respondents rated complexity across all areas fairly evenly (4 or higher out of 10) with security topping the list. 52 percent of respondents rated complexity of storage at 5 or more and 53 percent gave a similar rating for security.
