  • 1. IT ConvergenceNew Approaches to Building a MoreAgile & Efficient InfrastructureAndy RhodesExecutive Director, Converged Infrastructure Solutions
  • 2. Agility Quickly respond to new and changing business demands2
  • 3. EfficiencyLower CapEx and OpEx ofrunning IT Global Marketing
  • 4. Scalability Meet new and ongoing business needs for infrastructure4 #DoMoreIT
  • 5. The day-to-day challenges for IT data center infrastructure teams“It takes integrate toconfigure new infrastructure. too long design, procure, deploy & ” “We have to managetoolsinfrastructure … too many required the ”“We have too many … interoperability issues ” “I’m tired of juggling multiple … points of contact for support ”“My power, coolingare other ” operational costs & too high. “Our applicationbe inconsistent&and poor … performance availability can ” 5 #DoMoreIT

  • 8. Convergence will be pervasiveA approach that touches every part of IT: infrastructure, operationsmanagement, applications management, and service management Infrastructure Operations Applications Service management management managementFull physical Empower teams Technology Transforms howand virtual to become more and/or service IT services areconvergence to productive, to enhance delivered todrive greater reduce operational performance & on-premiseefficiency, reduced costs, increase availability of private clouds orspace & manageability & applications off-premisereduced energy speed application public clouds & service delivery
  • 9. What is converged infrastructure? Converged infrastructure systems combine compute, storage,networking, and infrastructure management into an integrated systemto provide general purpose, virtualized resource pools for applications, VDI, and private clouds Infrastructure Centric Application Centric Servers Storage Network V & OS Unified Systems Management & Automation Servers Procure & Storage Integrate Virtual Network Legacy Systems Infrastructure Management & OS • Single source of procurement & support • Often SI-led; multiple components/vendors • Turnkey: up in less than 2 weeks • Expensive; Consumes time & people • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO)9 #DoMoreIT
  • 10. Framework for infrastructure convergence Hardware Convergence + Management Convergence + Packaging Convergence• Modular and extensible • Unified infrastructure • Delivered in a “purchase• General-purpose, operations and and assemble” model fabric-connected resource management • Pre-engineered or hardware and software • Fewer panes of glass customized reference infrastructure stacks • Easier to patch & architectures• LAN/SAN traffic update • Turnkey integration• Storage (FCoE)10 #DoMoreIT
  • 11. Convergence of the infrastructure Optimizing for efficiency versus performance Buy Solutions Dell supports BOTH Infrastructure-Centric objectives to help organizations drive Virtualization-focused,Agility & Operational Efficiency competitive advantage…. seeking agility & efficiency for competitive advantage Invest Savings Optimized for e.g. Payroll, HR, Email Application-Centric Application performance provides competitive Build DIY Legacy advantage e.g. Banking Apps, OLTP SaaS (niche) Optimized for Performance of Applications 11 #DoMoreIT

Converged Infrastructure delivery modelsPre-integrated systems deliver the highest value to the overall lifecycle Superior speed Value Pre-integrated systems • Integrated support • Assembled Pre-engineered platform • Optimized reference architectures • Validated • Validated • Consistent Do-It-Yourself • Consistent • Highly available Superior (using solution matrix) • Highly available • Deployed flexibility • Compatible • Compatible • Compatible • World class products • World class products • World class products Maximum choice Maximum integration14 #DoMoreIT
  • 15. Pre Integrated Delivers BenefitsThroughout the IT Lifecycle • Flexible deployment options • Pre-engineered use cases • Single SKU order experience Design• One call for solution • Pre-assembled and wide support tested Easy integration• Consistent design Support Rapidly Respond Integrate • Turnkey enterprise shortcuts problem services Maximize Efficiency identification & resolution Strengthen Quality • Automated infrastructure • Single control point Operate discovery Configure • Standard configurations • Template based configuration • Re-configure servers faster15 #DoMoreIT
  • 16. Changing Buying PatternsConverged Infrastructure Adoption1/3 “By 2015, one-third of all servers will ship as managed resources integrated in a converged infrastructure….” “The traditional concept of the role specific server will become increasingly irrelevant in fabric infrastructures, cloud computing and network-based virtual resources…” “Is the Concept of the Server Obsolete, or in Need of Redefining?,” Gartner, March 29, 201216 #DoMoreIT
