Most IT professionals know too well the balancing act of wanting to implement cutting-edge, modern solutions while still maintaining control of the overall IT landscape. Your IT organisation is committed to supporting the workloads that the business depends on for success – whatever that takes. But ideally, whatever new deployment your critical workloads demand won’t chip away at the control over your IT environment that your team has worked hard to establish.
Those of you who have read our past blogs on optimising your organisation’s infrastructure for critical workloads have heard us go through some of the benefits of modernising your infrastructure with an eye towards end-to-end optimisation. We’ve explored how workload placement strategy requires continued attention over time, and how a hybrid approach to IT will set your organisation up with the flexibility that is needed as applications mature and new demands come up. But you may still find yourself asking how you can best leverage a variety of options in your IT purchasing – without losing control. Is there a way to engage in that freedom of choice, without sacrificing your command over your organisation’s IT landscape?
One thing that all IT organisations have in common – no matter the size, the location or the industry – is this desire to avoid making a choice that pigeonholes your future decision making or creates a siloed IT experience. Whenever a new workload is prioritised, IT should not have to upend long-term strategies to support it. But when looking at your deployment options, choice with control may seem out of reach.
We hear from customers across the global that they see Dell Technologies as a unique technology provider for their organisations because we can scratch this exact itch. Folks keep turning to our portfolio time and time again because our wide range of servers, data storage and data protection systems have given them the flexibility that their infrastructure decisions require when needs change. Dell Technologies can provide you with that range of choice you desire, without disrupting on the overall IT vision your organisation has worked hard to support.
As applications mature and needs change, your team will be best prepared to react if they have a flexible and secure infrastructure behind them. Take our extensive line of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers as a prime specimen. The PowerEdge platform can help you establish the right hybrid infrastructure for your IT organization, providing you with the choice and the control that you need as you determine the best placement options for each of your critical business workloads over time.
