In today’s competitive landscape IT must align with business by becoming more agile, driving innovation and reducing time spent on traditional functions like provisioning, configuring, updating, diagnosing and remediating. Data center transformation offers many benefits in line with these requirements like:
Improving application performance
Reducing storage footprint with all-flash
Reducing complexity and upfront cost with low touch, scale-out converged and hyper-converged systems
Delivering public cloud-like agility while retaining the security and control of on-premise infrastructure
Security threats continue to increase in number and complexity putting greater stress on IT teams. In response to the current threat landscape, software defined networks can:
Simplify security management and reduce vulnerabilities by curtailing firewall rule sprawl
Enforce policy consistency by integrating with next-generation security platforms
Enable the application of granular security policies to VMs and enforcing them at the virtual NIC level
Furthermore SDN facilitates disaster recovery by automating and streamlining the orchestration process, while disruption is reduced and ROI increased by leveraging existing network hardware.
By leveraging commodity internet circuits, SD-WAN eliminates spikes in latency and packet-loss allowing for private network-like performance at a fraction of the cost of MPLS. This lets companies meet growing bandwidth demands due to data growth and applications moving to the cloud. The technology prioritizes time-sensitive and mission-critical data during periods of peak demand. By actively allocating data across multiple connections on a per-packet basis, disruptions due to failed links, like dropped calls and lost connections, are eliminated.
Traditional storage arrays have been a staple of data centers for decades. Successfully running them has required dedicated storage networks; complicated data protection and business continuance systems; a team of highly specialized employees; and a large initial investment. In contrast HCI natively collapses core storage, compute and storage networking functions into a single software solution or appliance. Initial costs are minimized with scale-out architecture that limits upfront purchases; applications benefit from increased responsiveness offered by flash storage; and unplanned downtime is reduced due to built-in resiliency and data protection.
Public cloud offers businesses the lowest possible upfront costs for new workloads that don’t currently have associated infrastructure, but over time TCO can exceed that of dedicated hardware. Another strength of public clouds is the ability to elastically support peak demands, but this benefit can come at too high a price for relatively static workloads. Hybrid cloud solutions seek to balance cost with flexibility by bringing cloud-like agility to on-premise infrastructure with the option to burst to the cloud at peak times or for business.
Businesses with aging PBXs, multiple-incompatible phone systems, or who are experiencing rapid growth are increasingly turning to unified communications. Suites of features like integrated voice, video, SMS, instant messaging and file sharing eliminate the barriers to communications. Integrations with popular applications and APIs that allow endless customization embed communications into enterprise workflows. Modern Call Center solutions provide true omnichannel outbound and inbound routing, allowing agents to meet customers using their preferred communication method.
