The utilization efficiency, flexibility and scalability of Web-scale architectures appeal to the more traditional data center, but Enterprise IT needs the ability to run existing, Windows back-office applications and can’t sacrifice performance and reliability.
Web-scale architectures are more than just another industry buzzword. They are architectures used by organizations like Google, Twitter, Facebook and Amazon to create a converged infrastructure that can scale linearly to meet customer demand. They are also designed to use commodity hardware, so these organizations can remain competitive as they grow.
Scalability and cost containment are of course important to Enterprise IT as well, but they also need compatibility with existing applications like MS-SQL and Exchange as well as existing processes like backup and disaster recovery. Also Enterprise IT often does not have the time to endure the “some assembly required” aspect of Web-scale architectures. In our webinar, we will discuss how Enterprise IT can overcome these challenges by looking for solutions that deliver a turnkey Web-scale experience.
