Do More than Just Keep the Lights On

Let Infrastructure Innovation Shine with the Experts at PC Connection and EMC

by Mike Hewitt | Monday, June 29, 2015

Think of your IT infrastructure as a house…a bit of a strange analogy, but hear me out. Twenty years ago, that house was a one bedroom/one bath on a quiet street that rarely saw traffic from visitors. Over the years, the neighborhood has changed—and so have the demands on your little house. Today, it’s grown into a much bigger, more complicated structure with more rooms, more outlets, and more windows and doors. Now your utility bills are higher than ever before, and you spend a huge chunk of your monthly budget just to keep the lights on. Sound familiar?

Unfortunately, too many organizations today are trapped in the cycle of spending 70% of their budgets maintaining old equipment. With so much of your budget tied up, you have to pass on opportunities to spur innovation and implement new ideas. You’re forced to do more with less, even when you see great possibilities in things like data analytics, new flash storage technologies, and converged infrastructure. What you need is someone who understands the current layout of your house, the most efficient way to utilize the space, and how to transform it into your dream home.

For some organizations there has been little incentive to upgrade. Others have been struggling with shrinking IT budgets. And many smaller organizations don’t have in-house IT or are completely unaware of the looming EOS date. What does this mean for your organization? In a word, risk.

Upgrade Economics: Windows Server 2003

Delaying Your Upgrade to Windows Server 2012 Only Hurts Your Bottom Line

by Justin Zuill | 06.25.15

What is the cost of doing nothing? If your business is still using servers running Windows Server 2003, that cost may be substantial—and growing. In the dozen years since Windows Server 2003 debuted, the world has seen huge strides in both the hardware and software that comprise business IT. Processing power has continued to obey Moore’s law by doubling about every 18 months, and there have been two versions of Windows Server to supersede Windows Server 2003. On July 14, 2015, the official end of support (EOS) for this venerable workhorse finally arrives.
