    IT Silos Start to Crumble

    The traditional approach of operating and managing functional silos of compute, network and storage will begin to break down. By breaking down IT silos and creating large shared pools of resources, IT organizations could see improvements in management efficiency and the ability to scale, a reduction in training requirements, and a decrease in operational costs.

Information technology is a key competitive advantage for organizations of all sizes. To be responsive to business requirements, IT needs to be agile and scalable. And, to ensure that IT can adapt to ever-changing business requirements, infrastructure and operational expenses need to be cost-effective to fund and enable innovation. At the same time, IT services are expected to be continuously available and ubiquitously accessible.

The following slides depict some of the drivers informing these 2015 predictions, according to Jesse St. Laurent, vice president of product strategy at SimpliVity, a leader in hyperconverged infrastructure for the software-defined data center.

SimpliVity delivers the best of both worlds: cloud economics with enterprise performance, protection and functionality. The company provides software-defined infrastructure packaged on industry-standard x86 systems, providing abstraction, pooling and automation of IT resources and services.
