How RAM helps them overcome the top 5 workload constraints

In a recent Spiceworks survey of over 350 IT decision-makers, 47% noted that they planned to add more server memory in the coming year, even though half of all their servers were already running at the maximum installed memory capacity.* These findings make sense given how memory uniquely helps overcome the top 5 workload constraints that IT decision-makers noted in the survey.

Questions to help start the conversation

  • What are your top server workload constraints?
  • Which aspects of your workload are CPU or memory-dependent? How important are these applications?
  • What percent of your servers are operating at the maximum memory limit?
  • What steps are you taking to fully optimise the performance of every CPU core?

More memory allows your customers to use fewer servers – and accomplish more

Since memory is what feeds processing cores, it’s one of the most effective and affordable ways to improve CPU utilisation and efficiency. When CPUs are fully utilised, your customers are able to use fewer servers to accomplish more. And since fewer servers keeps power, cooling, and software licensing costs lower, it’s one of the best ways to cut costs and overcome workload constraints.
