What is Server Consolidation? - Server Consolidation is a restructuring of an organization's infrastructure for the purpose of reducing costs and improving control by optimizing the resource requirements. Dell has the right tools, products, and services to help address the key stages of consolidation (Logical, Physical, Workload, and Application), including the critical first step of preparing a business analysis to determine an estimated return on investment achievable from the effort. Dell's broad PowerEdgeTM server family meets the needs for high performance, serviceability/manageability, and flexibility dictated by consolidation requirements. And Dell's system management portfolio, which includes Dell's OpenManageTM system management software, enables centralized management and simplified operations.
