Building architectures that deliver agility

The need for business agility is shaping the next-generation data center. Gone are the days when expertise in servers and storage coupled with virtualization knowledge could keep up with the demand for data center services and efficiency. Automation is in many silos of the data center – and more recently across the data center – driving efficiency and productivity of technological capital investments.

WWT’s compute practice is aimed at the creation and integration of best of breed abstracted and automation reference architectures. By mapping and customizing these reference architectures to a customer’s environment, we can establish the foundation necessary to extract specific required outcomes for the upstream application need.

Realizing outcomes from a next-generation data center requires the ability to solve challenges ranging from core intelligent power and cooling needs, abstracting from physical components using software-defined storage and software-defined infrastructure, and extensively automating both provisioning and lifecycle of workloads running within the environment. Additionally, delivery models are shifting even at the infrastructure layer with solutions aimed at Storage-as-a-Service or Compute-as-a-Service.
