Discussion of the following:

How the data center and IT in general are evolving to address the new challenges of doing business in todays world. Basics about convergence and shared services Examining the business value of convergence Understanding infrastructure convergence and cloud computing Some considerations when seeking out solutions from technology providers. Examining some organizational roles and responsibilities for C level executives Looking at roles for other employees2

Convergence means youre being confronted with seemingly endless technology choices and confusing messages. A small number of vertically integrated service providers leveraging their base infrastructure investment into a high margin service delivery retail system using a single network platform for service delivery

Historically, data center resources were deployed in a silo-like fashion. One set of resources was dedicated to one particular computing technology, business application, or line of business.

These resources supported a single set of requirements and processes and could not easily be optimized or reconfigured to support actual demand. When this siloed approach was applied over and over again, to application after different application, over the years it created a phenomenon called IT sprawl.4

Now things have radically changed. The new world is mobile, immediate, and fluid.

Now growth in Web connectivity require industries that deliver real-time, immediate services. Example: In the banking sector, consumers expect to be able to manage their accounts securely and open new ones using any mobile device.

Big Data- New trend. Main goal is to develop analytic processes that are faster and more scalable than traditional data warehousing in order to extract value from the vast amounts of unstructured data produced daily by web and business users. The rapid growth of applications for big data analytics taking place in all major vertical industry segments and requires some level of infrastructure convergence.

The real problem is- IT is being asked to create solutions or services for organizations in a shortened time frame with the same or even fewer resources. Most enterprises dealing with less-than-ideal infrastructures driven by an explosion of information and aging hardware. Most enterprises still struggling with spending too much of their IT resources on operations, fire drills, and activities that just keep the lights on.

As shown, the result is that application, server, and storage silos and complexity have propelled most organizations into an IT spending pattern: more than 70 percent of the budget and resources are required for mere maintenance and operations to keep the lights on. less than 30 percent of time and money on innovation and things thatll help the business be more competitive.

With the higher costs of energy, limited space and capacity, and fewer resources business agility is suffering. The gap is widening between what the business demands and what IT can deliver. One reason why IT spends most of its time on operations and maintenance is the complexity involved in provisioning new applications. The processes for getting things done are cumbersome, time consuming, and unsustainable, requiring many processes, teams, and coordination.

A converged infrastructure addresses the problem of siloed architectures and IT sprawl by pooling and sharing IT resources. It establishes a pool of virtualized server, storage, and networking capacity that is shared by multiple applications and lines of business. Infrastructure convergence is regarded as the most optimal approach to simplify and speed IT, lower operations costs, enable more innovation, and drive business agility.11

New organizations will explore more innovative ways to run the business with better methods to meet changing customer demands. They will interact with customers, constituents, employees, and partners more quickly, and with greater personalization. They will have the most flexible IT infrastructure that can meet the ever-broadening requirements by the lines of business to transact efficiently, effectively, and securely.

Infrastructure convergence is about accelerating time-tobusiness value i.e. high IT payoffs in a short period of time. Accomplished by integrating servers, storage, networking, security, power, cooling, and facilities into shared pools of interoperable resources. Only then can IT accelerate application delivery in a predictable, repeatable manner for any workload. This, in turn, shifts significantly more IT resources from operations to innovation. IT organization has to keep up with fast-changing business demands and keep innovating to enhance competitiveness in the market.15

For organizations taking the incremental approach, there are three main steps that can help get you from where you are today to a fully converged infrastructure:

Standardize, Virtualize, and

Automate.

The first step for most organizations is standardization in order to increase quality and speed of IT service delivery. Standardization also lowers the cost of operations and creates better, more efficient management. Standardization could include moving to a small number of approved standard configurations implemented in a consistent fashion with consistent management tools.

Consolidation is often a part of the whole standardization process. The various elements of a converged infrastructure have been designed to work together in a consolidated fashion, so redundant components between server, storage, and networking are eliminated.

This increases the quality of service and begins to make IT more responsive and aligned to the needs of the business. Different types of virtualization include: Server Virtualization

Storage Virtualization

A converged infrastructure provides both technical and business efficiencies. At the highest level, converged infrastructure solutions enable IT to become an innovation engine for business growth. There isnt one converged infrastructure solution that fits every organization, but every converged infrastructure solution should deliver everything your company requires in order to truly become a service-centric IT organization.

Availability: As a companys convergence level increased, so did resource availability. Annual IT cost: Companies at higher levels of convergence benefited from lower costs per unit of IT workload. For example, organizations at Level 4 convergence reported costs per unit of IT workload almost 60 percent lower than those ranked at Level 3. Time to deploy new services: Higher convergence levels also meant a significant increase in the speed to deploy new services from weeks to days.

These results are impressive and show that a converged infrastructure delivers big-time business value. But there is so much more value that can be attainedHP Converged Infrastruc
