Why Should CIOs Move Away from Traditional Data Centres?

18 August 2015 by Sam Ng

The traditional data centre is on its way out. Far from being the backbone of the enterprise, it now drains excess resources and hinders quick responses to critical IT issues.

Enterprises need to break tradition and move to software-defined data centres.

CIOs have their hands tied with traditional data centre models, because of these reasons:

  • Limited freedom to configure and adjust settings
  • Lack of a dashboard to keep tabs on overall network health
  • Complicated reports and analytics
  • Need for a regular on-site presence


On the other hand, a software-defined data centre gives you intelligent control from a single interface – even remotely, on mobile. You know more and control better, with less effort.

Scaling up or down is a non-issue with a single-stack combination of storage, computing, network and security, plus virtualised operations and automated systems. And you get a first-person POV tour of your data centre, so you can identify and resolve issues on the go.

The result is a more efficient, more agile business, always ready to respond to growing demands.

Find out how a software-defined data centre trumps traditional models in every way.
