Technology is now a fundamental component of most businesses IT strategies, empowering organisation’s of all sizes to encompass new and diverse markets across the globe. Information Technology continues to drive and shape the applications required to harness the 24/7/365 demand placed upon todays systems. IT budgets rarely increase in a linear fashion with the infrastructure requirements they depend upon, therefore reductions in cost must be driven from operational efficiency.
Traditional technology stacks usually comprise of multiple vendors or best of breed solutions sourced on a per project basis. This approach exacerbates the management and increases TCO of point solutions, creating sprawl and operational headaches.
Converged infrastructure is an attractive ally in the fight against vendor sprawl by consolidating compute, storage, network, virtualisation and management into a single platform; businesses can drastically reduce their time to market, IT personnel and vendor dependencies. The amalgamation of technology layers, management and support drastically reduces the risk associated with the building block approach, compared to the best of breed approach of old.
