With many IT shops still performing their own integration work, virtualizion implementations take far too long to complete the infrastructure deployments (e.g., backup, compute, disaster recovery, high availability, networking, recovery, storage and more.) In many cases, deployments can take weeks or even months before they are fully complete. Enter converged infrastructure solutions.
Converged infrastructure solutions do more than simply deliver all of the hardware and software components necessary to host and run virtualization. They also dramatically reduce the time it takes for organizations to get their virtualized applications up and running.This combination of speed and ease in which these converged infrastructure solutions are deployed foretells how data centers both large and small will eventually expect their virtualization deployments to take place.
Converged infrastructures can be sized with anticipated workloads in mind, enabling organizations to be much more competitive – agile if you believe all of the vendor hype. In other words, organizations can accelerate application deployments, which in turn enables them to respond to the markets those applications serve with increased readiness and dexterity. Now deployments that once took weeks can realistically be done in days.
