Presidio’s Top Takeaways from Cisco Live 2018
From the release of HyperFlex 3.5 to the announcement of a hybrid cloud offering from Cisco and Google, Presidio saw all kinds of transformative technology at Cisco Live 2018. But our most valuable takeaway? The opportunity to strengthen relationships with our closest industry partners.
Quickest way forward to a cloud computing service model with minimal operational disruption and the most workload placement flexibility.
As everyone in IT knows, the demands on the data center (DC) keep growing – and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. So, how can businesses manage this trend and turn it into a competitive advantage?
What are the primary motivations for moving to the cloud? For many businesses, it boils down to simplicity. They want to reduce the complexity of their current network and data center and capitalize on the flexibility and efficiency the cloud offers. IT departments want to shift their focus from the day-to-day demands of managing technology and concentrate on delivering the innovation that technology makes possible.
Many businesses want to take advantage of cloud economics and flexibility, but they have concerns about the security of workloads that move between the controlled environment of an on-premises network and the cloud. The good news is that VMware NSX can help a business address these concerns and give it the flexibility to move workloads to a cloud environment and back without compromising security or creating more complexity for IT.
Something interesting is going on in enterprise data centers. Companies are finding that nothing they do within the glass walls yields a competitive advantage. Application strategy, business process optimization, industry innovation — the way IT supports those initiatives can help a company stand out in a crowded and competitive market. But the way a company runs cable doesn’t.
IT environments are inundated by an ever-rising wave of data that must be stored, managed and mined – resulting in application latency issues that impact performance. Now, a new class of solid-state drives, Intel® Optane™ SSDs for the data center, are proving themselves in multiple independent tests, accelerating storage performance for latency-sensitive workloads.
While the world outside grows more connected and complex, the job of managing the modern data center is fast becoming simpler and more streamlined. Here’s a look at five strategies that are driving the transformation to simplicity.
