The Rise of Integrated IT Infrastructure Systems: Top Enterprise Use Cases

  • The Rise of Integrated IT Infrastructure Systems: Top Enterprise Use Cases-

    The Solution

    Head to the cloud! Cloud computing environments based on the principles of the software-defined data center (SDDC), where compute, storage and networking resources are virtualized and bundled with robust management software, offer the needed agility to deliver applications and data on demand, in accordance with established security protocols, wherever workers are and on whatever devices they are using. Enterprises are flocking to cloud computing models: According to the RightScale 2016 State of the Cloud Report, 31 percent of enterprises are now running more than 1,000 virtual machines in a private cloud environment, up from 22 percent in 2015.

    But what does this mean for your company's legacy investments in traditional platforms?

In response to workers' increasing demands for anytime, anywhere access to company data and applications, today's CIOs and CTOs are turning to integrated IT infrastructure systems – converged and hyper-converged infrastructure solutions – to support a data center transition to cloud computing models built on the principles of the software-defined data center (SDDC).

SDDC architecture provides the needed flexibility, availability and security to stay ahead of workers' expectations; ward off rogue incursions into shadow IT; and allow for easy, centralized management of all data center resources. Integrated systems support SDDC architecture with highly scalable, reliable and secure infrastructure solutions that can direct virtualized pools of compute, storage and networking resources wherever they are needed on demand.

In this slideshow, Skip Bacon, vice president, Products – Storage and Availability, VMware, and Bob Madaio, senior director, Infrastructure Platforms Marketing, Hitachi Data Systems, examine the advantages of integrated systems — including converged and hyper-converged infrastructure solutions — in delivering cloud agility, and explore the top use cases for integrated systems being adopted by enterprises today.
