Achieve data-driven transformation with Cisco and Hitatchi CI

IT can no longer separately deliver compute, storage, and data management resources and ensure that SLAs are met amidst the tide of unstructured data with which businesses must tackle.

On top of these workload demands, IT must also become a business enabler that uses data to provide lines of business with strategic insight, next generation technology, and innovations that improve the bottom line.

With Cisco and Hitachi’s Adaptive solution for Converged Infrastructure, organization can achieve this data-driven transformation.

  • 11 features to look for in a converged infrastructure solution

    Taking advantage of all the data that is being created, captured, stored, shared, analyzed, and reported requires a completely different infrastructure than that of the past—one that is nimble, more affordable, hyper-scalable at a moment’s notice and easily managed without an army of administrators.

    This is why organizations need to rethink the kind of infrastructure they need to become a data-driven organization.

    Access this custom white paper to discover the characteristics that make converged infrastructure a suitable fit for data-driven organizations and how to get started.

  • 7 reasons why CI is a great fit for hybrid cloud

    Hybrid cloud has quickly become the IT architecture of choice for a wide range of enterprises that want to leverage the benefits of on-premises infrastructures along with the positives of cloud economics.

    However, to get the most out of their hybrid cloud environments, organizations should consider an IT infrastructure that is far simpler, can break down workload silos, and is more cost-efficient than a traditional data center—a platform like converged infrastructure.

    Check out this custom white paper to learn 7 reasons why converged infrastructure is a great fit for hybrid cloud.
