We are seeking feedback from IT Professionals with the purpose of implementing, architecting, and managing Windows in the datacenter. The product planning team for System Center and Solution Accelerators best practices are working on the future of Datacenter Automation in 2010. The value you bring to this effort of change is the experience and momentous tasks you have automating the management of Windows Services with your existing infrastructure. The survey we prepared will give you the opportunity to share your position on datacenter automation and the trends of the future to help us understand your motivations and business drivers for running your Datacenter today and in 2010. Our goal is to understand how your organization is factoring in new hardware, networking, virtualization, and storage with relative importance of optimizing the services in the Datacenter in 2010.

A Blade server is a stripped down server containing nothing more than a CPU and some RAM. They're designed to be used in environments where extreme computing density is required (such as cluster-based supercomputers, superfast servers or mainframes). They usually don't even have PSUs (power is provided by the enclosure).
