Although the IT mantra is 'do more with less', it has been impossible to do much more than keep the lights on, often spending more than three of every four IT dollars on maintenance and management. Virtualization, cloud computing and big data analytics all promise to improve system utilization, but bringing all the pieces of infrastructure, network, OS and software together and keeping them all humming in concert can consume the lion's share of IT and LOB budgets alike. Now however we see the emergence of a new class of pre-integrated systems known as Converged. Infrastructure, designed to deliver out-of-the box productivity gains while drastically reducing the time and cost involved in deployment and maintenance of both traditional and cloud-based solutions.
This IT Managers' Journal (ITMJ) covers 5 concrete ways in which Converged Infrastructure is changing the way IT is delivered, creating a radically new IT value proposition. While you can purchase individual computer, network and storage components can you really afford to do that any longer? This new value prop allows you to scale your data center with much larger building blocks leaving much of the initial integration and setup to your vendor.
