Accelerate Your Enterprise Storage for the Cloud Era

IT deployments are shifting rapidly to cloud models that enable digital
transformation. IDC says “Cloud First” will become the new mantra for
enterprise IT, noting that the major innovations taking place in IT today are
not possible without the cloud as a foundation. By the end of the decade,
IDC predicts that enterprise spending on cloud services and related
hardware, software and management will exceed $500 billion, more than
three times what it is today

If you’re in IT, don’t make the mistake of assuming that all or even most of this growth will be centered on public cloud services. It’s not even close. The reality is that every IT investment going forward must be either in support of the cloud or built on a cloud enabling platform. Cloud is not a specific solution, but a way of operating. If “Cloud First” is the new mantra of enterprise IT, then all data centers must aspire to be cloud-like melding together commodity hardware with software and automation to deliver simplicity, agility, elasticity, resiliency, security, self-service capabilities and resourcing pooling.
