Leveraging the network for your virtualization and cloud intiatives
A though leadership white paper discusses how virtualization, cloud computing, and the proliferation of smart devices are helping companies meet their goals and be more effective with their IT investments but are placing increased demands on the datacenter network. Organizations can no longer afford to treat the datacenter network as an afterthought, and it is not sufficient to simply throw more ports or bandwidth at the problem. IBM offers a portfolio of datacenter network planning, integration, and management services designed to maximize customers' DCN success. By working with customers to plan and implement the appropriate network design at the beginning of an IT project, IBM can help customers meet their business requirements, minimize operating costs, and build in flexibility for the future.
