Partnerships — Essential in Today’s Business World
CIO’s, IT directors and those who manage and procure critical enterprise infrastructure are often challenged with purchasing the right hardware, software, and services. These systems need to be scalable, efficient, and affordable to make sure that their organization can focus on their business objectives.
It was only just a few years ago that in order to architect a data center's infrastructure, you had to build and choose all systems from the top of rack down. This included networking, switches, servers, core storage, software across multiple vendors, software and hardware OEM’s, as well as service providers. Integrating and optimizing these diverse products into existing legacy infrastructures can be a daunting task. Now imagine having to look at moving mission-critical applications to a cloud architecture with assets that were continuously reaching end of life. The focus was on physical hardware that was often time-consuming to deploy and expensive to acquire and maintain. There had to be a better solution.
The term "converged infrastructure" was introduced; now customers could purchase storage, compute, networking, virtualization, security, intelligence, and automation in one box. Think of it this way: Ten years ago when you purchased a car, it didn’t come standard with a GPS navigation, backup camera, hands-free phone, or USB port. Now you can buy all those pieces and parts in one system.
The allure of the hybrid, private and public cloud and its perceived lower cost models continue to drive more and more customers to move and store data there. But the question remains, which one to choose? Enter Nutanix and their Hyper Converged Solutions. IT decision makers are moving from hardware-centric data centers to software-defined models that offer better agility, scalability, and the freedom to choose.
