Successful technology trends and innovations often have roots in cost reduction, simplicity, and business agility. Yet, ironically, in the era of virtualization and consolidation, the data center footprint has grown for many businesses, with a corresponding increase in capital expenditures (CapEx) and operational costs (OpEx).
Join us for a conversation with the renowned IT Analyst - Matt Kimball from Moor Insights and Strategy (MI&S) â?" to explain why Datacenter Modernization starts with IT Infrastructure Modernization.
Matt will discuss alternatives and strategies that can deliver business agility for the applications and the IT infrastructure that drive the digitally transformed business while lowering costs in a tangible and quantifiable way without sacrificing performance, security, or openness.
Datacenter modernization trends such as digital transformation have inundated IT organizations. Every trend drives the organization toward the same goals: increase agility, decrease time to market and reduce costs. However, in this drive the result of VM sprawl and new workload deployments has been more servers, more infrastructure, greater complexity and higher costs. In other words, business agility is somewhat achieved, but at a very high cost to the organization. This dynamic is due in part to workload placement methodologies driven by server designs that cannot support high utilization rates for a sustained period.
Enter - IBM LinuxONE. As a compute platform, it is unique in that it can deliver on consolidation without sacrificing performance, security or openness. In today's IT environment, where open source plays a significant role in driving the most critical business initiatives, LinuxONE is tailor-made for data intensive workloads and their unique requirements.
Hear from MI&S, how the total cost savings regarding LinuxONE appear to be real and compelling and worth exploring and why MI&S recommends IT organizations undertake a critical assessment of their distributed environments and compare those costs to deploying IBM LinuxONE.
