Converged infrastructure has introduced a new type of design architecture for the modern data center. We can now integrate powerful resources directly into the backplane of the data center. This allows us to combine workloads, users, and even business initiatives into smaller – smarter – data center components. With that in mind, it’s important to learn just how much of an impact new types of converged infrastructure systems have made. Aside from new kinds of data center economics and saving on space and resources, we now have many more use-cases we can adopt.
But here’s the big question – does converged infrastructure optimize the business? When should you be deploying converged infrastructure and what are the proper use-cases? Most of all - what are the best practices and deployment steps around modern converged infrastructure solutions? In this webinar, we'll dive into the very real impacts around converged infrastructure and how this technology is shaping the data center of the future. From there, we'll dive into:
- The evolution of converged architecture
- Where converged infrastructure meets modern business challenges
- Real converged infrastructure use-cases and examples
- Converged infrastructure deployment and best practices
