Government agencies are under pressure to leverage their IT resources as efficiently as possible. A significant element of that strategy is datacenter consolidation, which, at the federal level, is mandated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

This comes while government agencies are tasked with offering more services online, increasing effective interaction with constituents, and helping cut overhead and capital expense. That means that government IT managers are looking for ways to consolidate and cut down their technology resources yet offer more applications and online initiatives, which require more, not less, processing power.
