Facilitate x86-based convergence, and scale out to lower costs Increase infrastructure utilisation and simplify management
- Facilitate x86-based convergence, and scale out to lower costs
- Increase infrastructure utilisation and simplify management
- Lower the impact of explosive data growth through better storage utilisation
- Reduce power footprint and power costs
- Speed deployment and improve infrastructure performance
For business, this can mean faster time to market for new services, greater service resiliency, and lower IT operational costs and requirements associated with breakthrough savings, extreme flexibility, and total confidence in IT innovations.
