Business faces an ever increasing set of demands from customers and to deliver a rapidly expanding portfolio of services, CIOs need to face and deal with a variety of issues. Pain points such as overstressed IT personnel, constrained resources and constant demand of different priorities and a lack of integration between different systems exist across almost all organizations.Thus, big vendors in this space are promoting the concept of Unified Infrastructure which integrates server, networking, storage into a single platform.
