Is your IT infrastructure too complex? Too costly to operate? Too slow in responding to the needs of your business? If so, you're not alone.
Infrastructure convergence helps you increase IT speed and agility by making the data center simpler, more flexible, more efficient and less expensive to operate. It achieves this by breaking down rigid, complex IT silos around your network, data center and storage infrastructures and transforming them into resources that can be shared by many applications and managed as a service. It also includes embedded security at both the perimeter and core of your network, as well as power and cooling management capabilities so systems and facilities work together. Taken together, converged infrastructure accelerates the provisioning of IT services and applications to deliver value to the business in a systematic, repeatable and secure environment.
Infrastructure convergence has made the emergence of cloud computing and the promise of services anywhere, anytime a reality. But cloud is not one-size-fits-all. Organizations considering cloud adoption must consider the right mix of on- and off-premises services that leverage the best of traditional IT with private, managed and public cloud.
