Overview

Until recently, servers, storage and networking occupied separate domains of infrastructure, each with their own experts and management tools. But over the past half-decade a new breed of integrated infrastructure systems have come to market, arguably simplifying procurement, integration and operations management. This can result in both a more efficient and more agile IT infrastructure. The current market for integrated infrastructure has followed four approach-es: single SKU, application-optimized appliances, reference architectures and hyperconverged. All four approaches also involve some convergence at the management software layer.
