Server Lifecycle Management
Aging servers can suffer from poor performance and create a liability for companies demanding high uptime.
Traditional server lifecycles outline a replacement schedule on a rolling three- to five-year schedule, but new business demands could push existing hardware to its limit and require an earlier-than-planned refresh.

Plus, strategies to help IT decision makers better manage their hardware refresh budget.
