Video: Comatose Servers are a big problem

Comatose infrastructure is reducing the efficiency of data centers, says Aaron Rallo, CEO of TSO Logic.

If you look deeply inside the enterprise, you'll find a significant amount of compute resources that is not doing any useful work. That's like having any airplane that is sitting on the ground.

A recent study has found that 30% of servers in data centers were completely comatose, drawing full amounts of power, consuming expensive IT licenses, yet there were not doing any useful work. This includes both virtual and physical resources not being used.
