Solution Provider Shows IT Pros How to Eliminate Infrastructure Complexity through Automation Simplicity
NEW YORK, October 1, 2014 – As the data center grows more complex and more central to meeting organizations’ business needs, old technologies and processes may not be up to the task. That’s why savvy IT professionals are deploying virtualization management tools, software-defined networks and storage, and converged infrastructures for their organizations. They are setting the foundation for the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) that is in their future. Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), has identified four key benefits to the Software Defined Data Center that will help CIOs wrestling with tough choices make the decision to move from a manual to an automated data center infrastructure and environment.
“The Software Defined Data Center levels the playing field for underlying compute, networking and storage infrastructures, bringing together infrastructures that may be currently independent or siloed and turning them into a singularly controllable environment,” says Samad Ali, Vice President of the HP Business Group for Logicalis US. “This data center environment can then be centrally monitored and managed using smart tools like HP OneView integrated with VMware’s vCenter Server and vCenter Operations Management Suite. Now collaborative decision-making can be implemented via a single console to accurately direct resources and network profiles and create subtle changes that can deliver significant improvements.”
