The Solution Focus Series is a weekly digest feature designed to give you a triple-espresso shot of a given solution, gathering the top relevant presentations, webcasts and other materials that will help you come up to speed on that solution in the most direct and efficient manner.


This week’s Solution Focus is all about the Service-Driven Data Center. To keep up with industry and organizational demands, you must deliver the performance and services your customers expect—while lowering TCO. And whether your data center supports Windows, Linux or is mixed, it requires a high degree of flexibility and agility to meet the ever-increasing demands of today’s business.

The Service-Driven Data Center messaging takes the form of 4 presentations, a Keynote (delivered live at our recent Data Center Evolution tours) and the 3 Solution Focus Area presentations: Build, Manage and Measure.
