Trends seen in the market landscape and the ways in which the offerings are geared towards addressing these trends

Several emerging trends which demand notice and going to be on the decision table during the coming year are the following:

The movement towards smaller size but greater density in data centers; combined with a trend to analyze performance per kilowatt, is leading to energy management as a newer type of discipline. Higher density of the racks to save space horizontally and vertically; by using cloud technologies, higher capacity
systems, storage capacities in tiered architecture, network optimization etc.

Through next year, more than 60 percent of enterprises will have some form of cloud adoption, and the majority will be exploring private and public cloud techniques, called a hybrid cloud. Into the next three years, private cloud focused on servicecentric delivery of IT services to the organization will emerge.
