At a recent event our CIO, Diane Bryant, talked about our continued plan to replace old servers in our Data Centers (http://www.tgdaily.com/content/view/44213/135/). Here is a summary of her key points:
- Not replaceing servers could have costed Intel $19 million due to high maintenance and cooling cost
- Our plan of refreshing old servers with Nehalem servers will save Intel $250 million over 8 years
If you are an IT manager looking at where you can find extra dollar in your IT budget to invest in new technology, new innovation and new competitive capability for your organization, this must be good news for you! Moreover, if you do nothing, you are opening a hole in your IT budget.
