The Road to Converged Infrastructure

Adoption  31% have converged infrastructure in the data center, and 51% are considering it.

While the transition toward converged infrastructure in the data center has been steadily gaining momentum, it's looking like 2013 and 2014 are when the bulk of most IT organizations will be making this shift. A recent survey of 100,000 IT professionals conducted by Zenoss, a provider of IT management software, found that while almost one-third of those professionals said they have already made the change to a converged infrastructure, a little more than half are just beginning the journey. That's good news for solution providers in the channel that should view this shift as a significant opportunity to sell not only new gear, but also consulting services that help IT organizations re-engineer management processes across the data center.

Mike Vizard has been covering IT issues in the enterprise for 25 years as an editor and columnist for publications such as InfoWorld, eWeek, Baseline, CRN, ComputerWorld and Digital Review.
