ENABLING THE VIRTUAL ENTERPRISE: REDUCING COSTS IN THE DATA CENTER

Magnify the Cost Benefits of Data Center Consolidation

Large organizations create and acquire numerous data centers as a result of natural growth and M&A. Having a local data center at each branch or location is not as efficient or as cost-effective as creating regional data centers. Local data centers have higher power and cooling costs, require more IT resources, and take up valuable real estate. They also increase security concerns by providing additional points of vulnerability.

By making OpenText™ Exceed™ TurboX (ETX) part of your data center consolidation strategy, you can reduce costs while maintaining high performance for applications that are accessed remotely.

  • Efficient use of application licenses. By maximizing user density on application servers, ETX can save companies hundreds of thousands of dollars – if not more.
  • Tracking and charge backs. ETX supports an IT-as-a-Service (IaaS) model where services and systems can be cross-charged to individual departments.
  • Reporting on resource and license usage. ETX provides detailed usage reports to improve capacity planning and ensure license compliance.
  • Reduced endpoint costs. Maintaining a mixed environment of Mac, Windows, and Linux end-user desktops is expensive and time-consuming. ETX provides a consistent experience across user platforms, so you can focus on delivering a manageable set of virtual environments.
