As more compute and storage are driven towards the "edge of the network", organisations are rethinking their strategy to address efficiency, availability and capacity demands in their critical infrastructure. According to IDC, converged infrastructure spending is expected to reach US$17.8 billion in 2016. Where edge computing is dominant, converged systems can boost efficiency in areas such as point of sale, back office IT, healthcare labs and more.
The evolving IT landscape requires a new approach to optimising the data centre and converged infrastructure systems are the solution to addressing new data centre challenges through intelligent, integrated and rapidly deployable holistic solutions. Convergence in data centre systems can bring about advantages such as lower cost of new infrastructure build, flexibility of scaling up or down depending on demands and provide companies with a holistic view of disparate IT solutions through holistic monitoring. Emerson Network Power's infographic illustrates how converged systems are the keys to powering today's critical network edge.
