There has been a substantial amount of buzz in the market around the power of converged infrastructure and new types of use-cases. Today, converged infrastructure aims to unify powerful data center resources and introduce new levels of economics for the business. It’s important to see just how much we’re advancing when it comes to data delivery, new types of devices connecting into the data center, and how this is impacting your business.
The idea is to create unparalleled density and allow for resource to be delivered as effectively as possible. Furthermore, industry trends show that the pace of converged systems adoption will only continue to grow. According to a recent Gartner report, hyper-converged integrated systems will represent over 35% of total integrated system market revenue by 2019.
Furthermore, trends around converged systems continue to show growth in the segment. A recent IDC report recently look at Q3 of 2015 and how it impacted the converged system market. During that quarter alone, the worldwide converged systems market increased revenue 6.2% year over year to $2.5 billion. The market generated 1,261 petabytes of new storage capacity shipments during the quarter, which was up 34.8% compared to the same period a year ago.
With all of this in mind, it’s important to see what’s driving all of this change and adoption around converged infrastructure systems. With more maturity around CI, organizations are seeing some big infrastructure as well as business benefits around CI deployment. In this webinar, we'll explore specific converged infrastructure use-cases, where there are direct economic benefits, and how CI will impact the cloud and data center of the future. We'll also cover:
- Overall Cloud and Data Center Landscape
- Modern IT and Business Challenges
- How CI Helps with Business Economics and Simplifies IT
- Overcoming Security, Scale, and even Density Challenges
