 Server Consolidation: Beyond the Hardware

Linux Planet talks about Server Consolidation.

"Here's a good starting point: Except in the most trivial cases, server consolidation is not just about hardware. Of course, using fewer servers is usually one of the goals, but in most cases that is not the way to approach achieving the benefits of server consolidation. Server consolidation is a means to an end. The means of consolidation include hardware, software, services, and systems management. Server consolidation is also a process (and here's where the black arts comes in) of rationalizing and simplifying not only the physical servers but also the infrastructure that supports them -- and that can mean the human resources as well."
