20 years of expansions in the datacenter • Increase of complexity Required: • Processors • Memory • I/O Reality: Many isolated systems • High operational efforts individual installation, maintenance and operation of each system • No flexibility regarding workloads some systems are underutilized, some are at the limit • High availability often requires a spare system for each productive one PRIMERGY BladeFrame
