More than one-third of chief information officers believe that in two to five year's time, their datacentres will be unable to meet the rapidly growing demand for business services and applications, according to research commissioned by Hewlett-Packard.

The "HP 2008 Data Center Transformation Survey" was conducted by Penn, Schoen and Berland in February 2008.

HP used it to help launch a set of products and services designed to help customers transform their datacentres from a standalone collection of physical assets, into a virtual and adaptive infrastructure designed to rapidly meet changing business needs.

To meet this demand, HP is providing businesses with new tools and strategies needed to address top datacentre initiatives, including energy efficiency, automation, virtualisation, consolidation and business continuity.

These systems make up the HP Data Center Transformation portfolio offering.
