CW ASEAN: Hyper-convergence offers simple yet scalable storage

In this month’s CW ASEAN, we take a look at how TAL Apparel has reaped significant savings in storage and server resources by switching to hyper-converged systems. We will also explore the key drivers for the development of hyper-converged solutions and how they will transform the way applications are delivered.
