In the world of technology, a lot can change in three years: storage becomes cheaper, servers become faster, the “next big thing” may shrink from sight and new paradigms emerge to take its place.
The demands on internal IT departments are skyrocketing as organizations try to keep up with the quickly changing climate of IT. IT budgets are shrinking leaving fewer funds available to take on new technology initiatives.
At hospitals around the country, thin is in. As healthcare CIOs look to get their budgets into better shape, many are choosing a thin client strategy using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology to simplify and secure their IT environments.
As IT is adopting converged infrastructures, virtualization, and the Cloud, the need for a truly converged management tool is undeniable. Traditional siloed management is not efficient or effective in today’s IT infrastructures.
When it comes to high-performance workloads, Flash lives up to its name. The industry loves to talk about how Flash-based memory is perfect for applications that need low latency and lots of data processing power under pressure, such as the 8:00 AM storm that hits a data center when everyone boots their virtual desktop at the same time.
SDDCs promise to do for the entire data center what virtualization did for servers: increase flexibility, availability, provide enhanced automation capabilities, and deliver more bang for the box.
