The recent times have witnessed a staggering amount of money being spent on data centers including the monumental outlay for basic infrastructure, energy bills, cost of maintenance and upgrades, and, of course, staffing with expensive IT talent. This makes it critical for CIOs that the data centers go online on time, ready for 24/7 uptime, especially if they are running mission-critical tasks.
