Businesses of all sizes are turning to converged systems to reduce costs by running more workloads in less space, rolling out IT services faster and streamlining IT operations with extensible lifecycle management and template-driven orchestration. Benefits like these create a compelling case for the use of converged systems—from small businesses and remote offices to large data centers and web-scale service providers.
With digital transformation reshaping the modern enterprise, applications represent a new class of assets and an important source of differentiation. The ever-more-competitive digital economy requires that your applications be delivered with unprecedented speed, scale, and agility, which is why more and more organizations are turning to the cloud.
This explosive growth of apps hosted in the cloud creates a world of opportunities—and a whole new set of challenges for organizations that must now deploy and manage a vast portfolio of applications in multi-cloud environments. Automation and orchestration systems can help streamline and standardize IT processes across traditional data centers, private clouds, and public clouds. But with rapid innovation come concerns about security and delivering a consistent experience across environments.

In June 2016, CyrusOne completed the Sterling II data center at its Northern Virginia campus. A custom facility featuring 220,000 square feet of space and 30 MW of power, Sterling II was built from the ground up and completed in only six months, shattering all previous data center construction records. The Sterling II facility represents a new standard in the building of enterpriselevel data centers, and confirms that CyrusOne can use the streamlined engineering elements and methods used to build Sterling II to build customized, quality data centers anywhere in the continental United States, with a similarly rapid time to completion.
This evolving technology promises faster deployment, lower costs and improved IT staff productivity.
Hyperconverged data centers were once a niche technology that mostly appealed to organizations with specialized needs, such as streamlining the management of small and branch offices. Today, many enterprises are now recognizing the value of transitioning their conventional data centers into hyperconverged facilities.
Gartner reports that by 2018 hyperconverged integrated systems will represent as much as 35 percent of total converged infrastructure shipments by revenue, up from a low single-digit base in 2015. Download this white paper to learn more!

Chuck Dubuque - Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat Server and desktop virtualization technologies, which bring cost and agility advantages to enterprise IT, have become mainstream in most datacenters. However, after nearly 10 years, virtualized servers still only represent about 30 percent of x86 production workloads due to technology limitations and the expense of proprietary virtualization platforms. In this session, Chuck Dubuque will cover:
* The benefits of datacenter virtualization
* Technologies in the open source community that will enable pervasive virtualization
* The move to the cloud
* The particular advantages of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and the Red Hat subscription model
