Virtualization, cloud computing, and the consumerization of IT continue to drive fundamental shifts in data center management priorities. Many organizations are implementing multi-hypervisor architectures and hybrid public and private cloud strategies. Converged systems integrate servers, storage, networks, and software to optimize the performance of specific workloads and simplify system deployment and operations. Yet, traditional data center architectures continue to support many mission-critical business applications.
This Technology Spotlight examines how advanced automation and orchestration solutions are helping IT data center operations teams effectively manage increasingly complex enterprise computing environments. It also looks at IBM SmartCloud. Orchestrator as an example of a solution that is addressing these emerging IT management priorities.
