IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. Although not synonymous with digital transformation, the two concepts are fundamentally linked together, as effective digital transformation cannot happen without IT Transformation.
A company that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed, legacy technologies. It sees a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness—tasks are automated, processes streamlined, and resources are freed up. Those IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation, allowing the company to thrive in today’s digital economy. It is able to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors—ultimately becoming the disruptor, not the disrupted.

From your most critical workloads to your cold data, a scale-out or scale-up storage solution — one that can automatically tier volumes or data to the most appropriate arrays or media (flash SSDs or HDDs) and offers advanced software features to help ensure availability and reliability — can help you efficiently manage your data center.
This guide is intended for creative marketing and business leaders who recognise that the current technologies and processes that support marketing cannot scale with the demand for dynamically relevant, personalised brand experiences. DAM is about more than storage. It’s a strategic enabler of digital transformation.
When comparing the architecture for Ceph and SolidFire, it is clear
that both are scale-out storage systems designed to use commodity
hardware, and the strengths of each make them complementary
solutions for datacenter design.
