    DataON, Microsoft
    Two of the most exciting data center trends of the past few years has been around the push towards software-defined infrastructures and hybrid cloud computing. Software-defined infrastructures move data centers away from discrete hardware-defined systems and towards a software-defined environment that can run on industry-standard hardware. By 2023, 70 percent of enterprises will be running some form of hyper-converged infrastructure, up from less than 30 percent in 2019, according to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure.
     
    Cloud computing has gained popularity for its ease-of-deployment and flexible resource consumption. While it may work for many companies and workloads, it’s not the right answer for everyone. Despite the rise in cloud adoption, some companies are opting to bring certain workloads back on-premises. A hybrid cloud environment combines cloud and on-premises computing and allows data and applications to be shared between them.
     
    With both software-defined infrastructure and hybrid cloud computing, the IT goal is the same: increase IT flexibility, improve security, boost performance, and control costs.

    In this webinar, DataON’s Howard Lo and Microsoft’s Rick Claus will talk about what you need to know about these trends, and how DataON and Microsoft can help you with your IT modernization journey.
