Enterprise Applications & Architecture

Converged Infrastructure: Benefits and Challenges (Technical Briefings)

Course Overview
In this program, technologist and expert Samad Ali discusses the rise of the Converged Infrastructure and how this increasingly popular IT solution is simplifying data center set-up and management, as well as dramatically reducing computing cost. But, let's bear in mind that despite an increasing number of CI fans, there are still quite a few naysayers out there. The great fear seems to be that in the end these converged systems won't "have what it takes" to support certain critical enterprise applications. To help clear the air, we'll take a look under the hood of CI, discuss its benefits, implementation challenges and learn the circumstances when organizations should consider embracing these solutions.
