The datacenter has evolved. Where we used to see the enterprise datacenter as a location (or locations), the modern datacenter has no physical construct. Rather, the modern datacenter emphasizes data – and spans the core to the cloud and the edge. It is critical for the modern IT executive to understand this, as it informs the strategy and approach to building out the next generation of infrastructure that drives the modern, data-centric business. Data collected across the business must be aggregated, shaped, and transformed into intelligence that runs the digital business and drives rapid business decisions based on near real-time data. The data-centric business requires data-centric infrastructure – i.e., infrastructure designed and optimized to enable the fastest time to value, time to action, and time to outcome. This means infrastructure that can deliver this business outcome with the most robust security and availability profile while simultaneously reducing costs.
