Fernando Tavares, Technical Evangelist, Symantec
The traditional datacenter landscape has changed forever, leaving infrastructure abstracted and virtualised, delivered as a service. We’re seeing virtualisation extend well beyond just computing, with storage and network virtualisation quickly becoming the norm for most organisations.
This model holds true regardless of whether the infrastructure resides internally or in the cloud. Dependency on physical hardware is being eliminated as software manages everything, increasing flexibility and agility. As infrastructure becomes highly virtualised and moves toward the private cloud, traditional IT resources need to evolve or risk becoming irrelevant.
If achieving an agile data center requires elastic infrastructure, service-model delivery, and the application of IT intelligence,
how does Symantec help advance these objectives? By taking each one of these goals individually, we can better understand
Symantec’s role in building an agile data center by:
•Improving Infrastructure Elasticity
•Delivering Resources As-a-service
•Cultivating IT Intelligence
