The IT infrastructure that powers digital transformation
Adoption of digitalization – incorporating technologies such as IoT, artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality and big data – is rapidly driving data center transformation and scalability into larger dimensions. One of the key challenges organizations face is defining how to use the right mix of cloud based services and infrastructure technologies to deliver both new digital solutions and to modernize their existing infrastructures. To be able to support customers in this transformation journey, Fujitsu offers a broad range of servers, mainframe and storage systems, necessary infrastructure and data center management software products as well as predefined Integrated Systems to facilitate the setup of an IT infrastructure and its operation.
Data Center Systems for the Digital World
Enterprises are under enormous pressure to digitize business processes. Hence in the digital world all threads come together in the data center – this is where action is needed to forge a sustainable future. Fortunately there are some new developments in technology, IT architecture and sourcing that can help. This white paper provides an overview of these developments and guides you through the seemingly daunting technologies and options now available.
Digitalization continuously creates new data sources contributing to an exponential data growth. This requires new IT architectures which can scale flexibly at an instant. Software-defined data center (SDDC) concepts following an end-to-end virtualization approach are able to fulfill even extreme scalability demands. Pre-defined and integrated converged and hyper-converged infrastructures could establish themselves to accelerate the adoption of SDDCs. They also make it easier to shift workloads into the cloud by providing the technical foundation to connect on premise IT with the cloud. Such Hybrid IT constructions enable data center mangers to re-allocate internal resources from maintenance and operations to digitalization projects which create direct business value.
