In today’s world, change and innovation are happening at unprecedented rates. To keep up with the rapid shift to a digital economy, enterprises are undergoing digital transformations internally, which is also driving IT transformation.
More frequently, IT teams are required to provide cloud services, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS), for business units that are no longer following traditional workflows. This shift is creating a need for tools that can automate the deployment, and required maintenance, of server environments.
These intelligent automation tools can save time, resources, and free up IT for higher-priority projects.
Eliminate the burden of server management with intelligent automation
For many IT teams, server lifecycle maintenance is an everyday part of the job. However, the time and cost of maintaining that server throughout its entire lifecycle adds up.
Without an intelligent automation solution, once a server is deployed, it will need regular updates, it’s performance will need to be monitored, and regular maintenance will be needed to ensure it continues to operate as intended. Now, multiply that time and effort exponentially as IT teams continue to provide more than ever before through the cloud, and required increased server allocations.
Some IT teams are automating aspects of server management, but configurations, deployment, and maintenance are still often handled manually. In addition to the time and resources that requires, human error can cause setbacks that require additional time and attention to rectify.
However, the addition of tools to automate server lifecycle management can reduce this burden.
When considering a solution, it’s important for IT teams to search for solutions that offer cost savings, framework that is open and extensible, and a proven track record across the industry.
Save time and reduce server maintenance burden with Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers
Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers offer IT a way to drive down the cost and time associated with server lifecycle management. Additionally, Dell’s intelligent automation is proven to drive greater server availability.
In comparison to manual server lifecycle management, management while utilizing Dell EMC’s intelligent automation is remarkably hands free, with automated, policy driven deployment, scheduled updating, agentless monitoring, and simplified maintenance processes.
In addition to time saved through intelligent automation, it also allows for increased consistency across the server environment, which offers optimized performance, and reduced complexity when updates servers.
Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers also offer uncompromised data security through features like System Erase, a tool to wipe servers clean to return them to factory settings by removing data from nonvolatile storage, and Easy Restore, which allows IT to bring a PowerEdge Server back to its last known good state with just a few clicks.
By utilizing Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers to automate aspects of server lifecycle management, enterprises can drive down costs, allocate resources to areas that need them most and accelerate their IT transformation.
