With the current pace of IT complexity, companies are often overwhelmed. The increasing pace with which data and new applications are being created, combined with the complexity of existing infrastructure, have left most IT staff overburdened and unable to keep up with business demands.
IDC research repeatedly tells us that IT staff spend approximately 80% of their time just maintaining existing infrastructure or barely “keeping the lights on” – hardly a way to drive innovation. To propel both innovation and agility, infrastructure must focus on improving operational and capital efficiencies. Converged systems have proven to be an excellent fit for addressing the challenges that are overwhelming datacenters and the staff that run them.
In this webinar, IDC and NetApp will discuss the current state of converged systems and share a recent IDC survey showing real-world insights from FlexPod customers who achieved remarkable savings and performance gains by deploying converged infrastructure.
