To achieve their "do more with less" goals, they need to transform their datacenters using a combination of consolidation, virtualization, and automation. Once these initiatives are properly established, IT can extend the virtual edge of the datacenter to branch offices where high-performance services are delivered locally from centrally managed infrastructure.
