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

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

    Managing Geo-Distributed Infrastructure

    For enterprises looking to support regional offices with a robust workforce but lacking a significant on-site IT presence, SDDC running on HCI appliances can provide the needed data center capacity and efficient remote support. Strong centralized management and orchestration capabilities enable lower OpEx by allowing IT organizations to consolidate their staffing resources, centralize oversight of multiple regional data centers, and reduce the level of on-site resources needed in each regional office as would be required to maintain legacy infrastructures.

    Managing Geo-Distributed Infrastructure

    For enterprises looking to support regional offices with a robust workforce but lacking a significant on-site IT presence, SDDC running on HCI appliances can provide the needed data center capacity and efficient remote support. Strong centralized management and orchestration capabilities enable lower OpEx by allowing IT organizations to consolidate their staffing resources, centralize oversight of multiple regional data centers, and reduce the level of on-site resources needed in each regional office as would be required to maintain legacy infrastructures.

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.
