CIO’s, IT directors and those who manage and procure critical enterprise infrastructures are often challenged with purchasing the right hardware, software, and services. Systems need to be scalable, efficient, and affordable so that the organization can focus on its business objectives. But how do you know which technology vendor will safely meet these needs?
It was only just a few years ago that in order to architect a data center’s infrastructure, you had to build and choose all systems from the top of the rack down; such as, networking, switches, servers, core storage, software across multiple vendors, software and hardware OEM’s, as well as service providers. Now, with the introduction of converged infrastructure solutions, customers can purchase storage, compute, networking, virtualization, security, intelligence, and automation in one box. Think of it this way: Ten years ago when you purchased a car, it didn’t come standard with a GPS navigation, backup camera, hands-free phone, or USB port. Now you can buy all those pieces and parts in one system.
The allure of the hybrid, private and public cloud and its perceived lower cost models continue to drive more and more customers to move and store data there. IT decision makers are moving from hardware-centric data centers to software-defined models that offer better agility, scalability, and the freedom to choose. IT managers can migrate workloads and business data seamlessly across different cloud environments.
