14 The Branch Story OVERVIEW Branch Story…Branch Story… –30% of businesses have remote sites –55% of Large Orgs headcount in branch sites (7% in 03) (7% in 03) –Branches consume nearly 33% of IT budgets –Large Orgs spent $25B US on WANs in 2003 Achieving TCO Gains…Achieving TCO Gains… –Consolidation: Do we need branch servers? –Productivity vs. Performance? Source: Microsoft Research The WAN is the largest recurring cost other than people in IS organizations. Gartner

15 The Branch Story CONSOLIDATION Most companies have consolidated their central serversMost companies have consolidated their central servers –Consolidation paths are clear – Windows Server 2003 scalability Focus shifting to branch server consolidationFocus shifting to branch server consolidation –Path is less obvious. TCO gains come with trade-offs. Servers in branch sites? Servers in central sites?
