5 Ways Converged Infrastructure Is Transforming Midsize Businesses

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.

On the other hand, the infrastructure struggles to keep up with the pace of data growth, pressured by many variables, both social and economic. Businesses have no choice but to acclimate their storage infrastructure to the unprecedented levels at which data is growing.
