Q

Servers and consolidation

Consolidation affects server management and expert Andrew Kutz will tell you why in this expert response.

How does consolidation affect the management of servers?

Consolidation can greatly improve the overall management of the physical hardware of servers. This is because consolidation

platforms such as blades, SANs, virtualization software, all come with management software that is integrated with said platform. However, this does not translate into management of operating systems. There are just as many OSs to manage as before.
