Category: Infrastructure

Your infrastructure still needs work, even if you move every asset to the cloud. You still need a company network and maybe even some local storage server(s) to handle the basic office workload. Managing infrastructure and choosing the right solution for your office, or even for your own datacenter, requires the right information.

Many companies still operate at least two infrastructures: the first one is their office network, the second one is their datacenter. Within the new cloud era, maybe one of them will disappear, but you cannot replace all your infrastructure. At the other end, maybe a new infrastructure will take its place, if you are moving into the Internet of Things for example.

Enterprise Storage

If you have a lot of data that needs to be available fast or if you need fast storage in your datacenter you cannot do this without an enterprise storage solution: solutions Cisco, Dell EMC, HPE, NetApp, Nutanix and many others can offer you. However, how do you pick the right one?

Servers

Running your own datacenter is still a common use case. In the future, many big IT vendors, like AWS, expect that companies will limit their own datacenters to a minimum, but before that, it just is a fact that you need servers. Servers that can carry your workload and if its possible, more intelligent server that can be combined. For example, a hyper-converged infrastructure that can be extended when you need more resources, instead of buying plain old servers. Companies want a more intelligent, maybe even a leased datacenter solution, or a completely autonomous datacenter which is virtualised by VMware.

Network

Managing your own infrastructure is only possible with a high-quality network. Putting a switch between a couple of servers and plugging in the network cable is easy. However, that’s yesterdays innovation. You want a software-defined network, where you can easily manage all devices that are connected to your network, and where you can manage who is allowed to talk to who. This ensures that security is implemented at the highest level.

IoT

Within many infrastructures a new innovation will come in, maybe it already is in place or maybe its on the way. The Internet of Things will connect devices to the internet which never had a connection in the past. So, they can be monitored or managed remotely. For example, industry machines get connected or sensors are being added to legacy devices to monitor them more frequently. In some markets, the IoT will revolutionise the way business is being done. In agriculture, crops can grow much faster by optimising the complete process. Sensors are added to the soil and continuously measure what can be done to improve conditions.
