2 The data center is full of nonstop action. In the physical infrastructure, SDN is disrupting networking, flash is shaking up storage, and hypervisors have revolutionized how we buy servers. For managers, DevOps and Lean business models are changing attitudes and application strategies. And of course, cloud is everywhere. All 217 respondents to our new State of the Data Center Survey are involved with data center management or decision- making at organizations with data centers of 1,000 square feet or larger. Among them: >> 73% see demand for data center resources increasing over the previous year. >> 41% expect to have 75% or more of their organizations' production servers virtualized by the end of >> 37% say storage growth will have the greatest impact on data center operations in the coming 12 months. >> 34% call private cloud a high priority and say their companies are there or well along the way; that’s up from 27% in our 2013 survey.
