IT infrastructure is the backbone of today's modern business. One of the most significant solutions that IT organizations are deploying to meet today’s demands are converged systems that integrate compute, storage, and network resources; virtualization software; and infrastructure management software into a pretested platform.
IDC conducted in-depth interviews with 11 IT organizations, enterprises, and major service providers that deployed CI systems based on VCE Vblock Systems. Vblock Systems are built by VCE using compute, networking, and storage technologies and virtualization software from Cisco, EMC, and VMware.
IDC found that Vblock System implementations sped deployments, simplified operations, improved business-support agility, saved money, and freed staff to launch new applications, extend services, and improve user/customer satisfaction.
