Stay connected to technologies, trends, and ideas that are shaping the future of the workplace with the Intel IT Center.
Ignite Business Agility with Software-Defined Infrastructure
Today’s enterprise data centers serve a dynamic and unpredictable business environment where IT is tasked with maintaining control of strategic assets on premises while delivering cloud capabilities across the enterprise. Software-defined infrastructure (SDI) delivers the cloud architecture that businesses need for greater flexibility and agility, while bringing hyper-efficiency to your data center.
Intel® technologies are the foundation of robust SDI solutions across the broadest range of software and hardware platforms—from leading vendors as well as open-source. Whether it’s a move to software-defined compute, storage, or networking, SDI builds agile enterprises ready for cloud innovation.
THE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR ENTERPRISE INNOVATION
Businesses face increasing demands that are driving the need for rapid innovation and even better customer experiences. To meet those expectations, IT needs to deliver efficient, agile services in new ways. Fortunately, the technology barriers that once kept businesses from building scalable data centers are rapidly falling away. SDI paves the way for enterprise clouds that are optimized to accommodate traditional and cloud-native applications with ease.
With SDI-enabled clouds, you can manage your most strategic on-premises workloads with ease while gaining a seamless pathway to a hybrid cloud environment as business needs change.
GETTING STARTED WITH SDI
SDI can drive a number of positive impacts for your business. Legacy enterprise storage systems are a key area for transformation with software-defined storage. So are enterprise networks, which can benefit greatly from virtualization and a software-defined architecture that allows for more fine-grained network security policies. Highly virtualized businesses will want to explore cloud orchestration capabilities in SDI solutions for greater levels of programmatic controls and automation.
Regardless of where you begin your SDI journey, your end game remains the same—a high-functioning, efficient, and agile data center ready to drive cloud innovation for your business.
