With the enterprise focus rapidly shifting toward digital strategies, the executives will continue to rely on IT solutions to drive the business transformation. Besides, the exponential growth of data is pushing enterprises to reinvent their data center models to achieve greater flexibility and efficiency with minimal complexity.
On the other hand, data center solution providers are embracing DataOps—a portmanteau of ‘data’ and ‘operations’—approach to accommodate analytics capabilities and take their value proposition to the next level. In line with the technological upheaval, these solution providers are also replacing legacy components with a slew of disruptive technologies such as containers and virtualizations, edge-computing, and flash memory to shape the modern data centers.
Today, the providers emphasize on offering enterprises with a single data center management console through a convergent infrastructure. Also, the single asset management console gives the IT department adequate time and a streamlined view for agility and innovation within the data center. To reinforce the data center transformation, forward-thinking enterprises are geared to leverage pioneering data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions that give their clients a transparent view into the architecture and performance. Hardware technology, on the other hand, has witnessed a paradigm shift from time- and energy-consuming magnetic disk storage systems to advanced flash solutions such as high capacity disk storage and Serial Storage Architecture (SSA), which will continue as ubiquitous storage technology solutions in future.
To help enterprises find the right data center solutions provider, a distinguished selection panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and the APAC CIO Outlook’s editorial board has selected a list of data center solution providers that exhibit innovative technologies combined with latest data management strategies.
