Working as a data center IT professional is not unlike juggling chainsaws: there’s little room for error and a mistake could lead to disaster. While most data center IT pros are smart enough to stay away from flying power tools, they are tasked with juggling uptime, reliability, performance and efficiency. And the stakes are high.
The key to maintaining this difficult balance comes from knowing how to choose both hardware and software to find that elusive “sweet spot.” Adopting converged or hyperconverged systems in combination with “All-In-1” power solutions is a tried and true path to never dropping another metaphorical chainsaw in your data center.
A 2013 report from International Data Corporation highlighted that, thanks to virtualization, data centers are shifting more toward converged infrastructures. The report concluded that “the infrastructure management challenge has increased” and that “IT departments now spend three quarters of their time and resources maintaining the environment and less than a quarter on value-added activities.” The paper pointed to the inevitable rise of convergence in data centers, which we’re now seeing happen in real-time.
