Converged Infrastructure Enables Advanced IT
Information Technology continues to evolve at a dizzying rate. With the advent of Virtualization and Cloud Computing the IT industry has taken a new path – bringing together all of the core technologies used in the data center into pre-integrated converged platforms that combine storage, network and compute. These platforms are optimized for a virtualization and shared infrastructure model – moving away from traditional dedicated platforms for individual applications.
This white paper provides CIOs and IT executives with a practical guide on the players driving this market and provides practical advice around the selection, design, implementation and operations for these new IT solutions. The paper also describes some of the use cases and real-world examples – validating the value of these platforms for customers.
