Although companies are adding data center capacity to support emerging technology workloads, they retain aging servers for longer than they should.
Servers are not being refreshed quickly enough. On average, 40% of server hardware deployed at company data centers is more than three years old. Companies are adding capacity to support emerging workloads, but they retain aging hardware for four years on average, which is longer than ideal.
The consequence is a lack of agility and unmet business needs. The result of an aging infrastructure ? Time-consuming application updates, application performance that does not meet end user needs, and infrastructure that cannot effectively support emerging workloads.
