As IT organizations continue to optimize infrastructure
management and strive for new ways to support the business,
many are finding that converged infrastructure solutions advance
those goals by simplifying data center management and freeing
up IT resources for innovation efforts. In a recent IDG survey,
almost one-third of respondents indicate they have already
implemented such solutions, while another third plan to do so
within the next two years.
Converged infrastructure solutions aggregate commonly deployed IT infrastructure components—servers, storage, networking, virtualization and software—into pre-packaged or pre-validated systems that are delivered directly from the vendor or reseller channel for streamlined consumption.
