Achieving the Dynamic Data Centre
As enterprises strive for greater innovation, insight, and agility, IT is under pressure to transform rapidly. The line of business expects IT to handle an emerging range of computing-intensive and data-intensive workloads with very different characteristics from traditional IT. Executing these workloads requires IT to master multiple technologies ranging from high performance computing and big data analytics to virtualisation, containerisation, and cloud.
IT teams can benefit from connecting these seemingly diverse and disparate technologies into a dynamic and integrated clustered computing environment. This white paper examines the emergence of Linux clustering in the enterprise data centre, then proposes a set of criteria to consider when evaluating options for managing clustered IT infrastructure in a dynamic data centre.
