When Alcatel bought out Lucent at the end of 2006, the two companies had already begun planning data center consolidations of their own, but the merger changed all that. As it turns out, the merged company created a plan to consolidate 25 data centers and 125 server rooms down to six data centers and just a few server rooms. This change has presented challenges, especially in terms of arranging downtime and dealing with employees' attachment to their servers and applications, but the company is on pace to meet it’s goal of reducing IT operational cost by 25% over three years.

Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

The success of SQL Server in recent years has produced a phenomenon of SQL Server sprawl - the uncoordinated deployment of tens, hundreds or even thousands of database servers. The result has been low levels of utilization, poor availability and, most importantly, an enormous management burden inflicted on many IT departments. There is an acute need for a way to deploy SQL Server that allows capacity to be matched appropriately to need, that provides high availability without introducing extra complexity and extra cost, and that actually simplifies the life of administrators.
