For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
