  • Choosing the Right Hardware Ingredients

    Choosing the right hardware for your data center requires a careful examination of the various infrastructure approaches. Whether a simple, yet expensive rollout of converged hardware or a more flexible approach with multiple vendors works best for your organization will depend on size, technical requirements, staff expertise, and, of course, budget.

    In this exclusive handbook, experts explore the various options, from choosing a single hardware source to opting to customize through multiple vendors and offer insights on how to approach such decisions and how to think about simplicity versus flexibility.

    Read on and you’ll also examine the idea of vendor lock-in in the context of availability and server architectures.

  • What Converged Infrastructure Brings to a Private Cloud

    The major categories of on-hand data resources - compute, memory, networking and storage – need to be exactly that, on-hand. However, the piecewise addition of more SAN equipment and networking, along with each new round of servers, created more and more colossal interconnections.

    This concise expert e-guide provides a detailed overview of converged infrastructure, or what our editors like to call “hardware that’s designed with virtualization and the cloud in mind.” Read on now to learn how a private cloud can act as an enabler of converged infrastructure and what benefit this can provide to your business.
