"In contrast to the efforts of many vendors, a lot of customers have not shown a readiness to switch from an extensive to an intensive model of infrastructure development. This is due to the high cost of management and optimization tools, and customers believe that often the CAPEX of converged solutions will be higher than that of the traditional approach." --- Marina Kostova, Research Analyst, Systems and Infrastructure Solutions, IDC CEMA
