Hot Topic on ICT: Evolution of the Datacentre Network Architecture


The typical approach to building datacentre infrastructure is becoming a limiting factor because it yields low asset utilisation, poor energy efficiency, and increasing complexity. Simply, organisations are running out of space, power and cooling capacity, budget, and qualified staff.
Within this session you will learn about design best practices for building a scalable and sustainable datacentre strategy through consolidation and virtualisation of datacentre resources to increase asset, energy, and budget efficiencies. This virtualised datacentre then provides organisations an agile resource that can quickly respond to changing business needs while reducing overall infrastructure investment.
