Infrastructure Transformation

Understanding the Software Defined Transformation:

Software-defined infrastructure is the definition of technical computing infrastructure entirely under the control of software with no operator or human intervention. It operates independent of any hardware-specific dependencies and is programmatically extensible”.

Why Software Defined Infrastructure matter in todays business?

Hardware DefinedSoftware Defined
Time Consuming Manual Provisioning Automated provisioning / De-provisioning
Discrete & Under-utilized Pooled and Optimize
Sized upto maximum needElastic, Grow/Shrink when requires
Less than 10% UtilizationEvery component directly supporting business objective
Large CapEx / OpEx Minimal CapEx, Reduced OpEx
Less Secure, Error proneHigh Secure, resilient

The Capex and Opex of maintaining large, complex heterogeneous data centers taxing many businesses driven by legacy applications and infrastructure. To maintain competitive edge in a highly dynamic market, business need to re-imagine the customer experience in lower economics. The challenge is that today’s competitive environment is accelerating faster than most conventional infrastructure can support it. Business need an entirely new, cloud-native approach – that’s primed for innovation and agility from the ground-up. With the emergence of cloud and virtualization, combined with dramatic cost reductions for data center hardware, have driven an evolution to large homogeneous, Hybrid IT which are comparatively easy and cost effective to manage. Enterprises are looking for dramatically reducing the provisioning cycle for compute / storage / network and deliver the scale, stability, speed and efficiency required to support rapidly evolving enterprises. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) mainly drives this change. Infrastructure transformation is the first technology waypoint on the cloud native approach. Business need to lay the foundation for innovation by forensically re-architecting the existing legacy environment in support of business objectives. Whether that’s controlling costs, supporting growth, driving efficiency or otherwise.

Forward-looking IT organizations are modernizing and consolidating IT infrastructure to meet the increased agility and price-performance requirements of today’s on-demand applications, cloud-native services and digital businesses. Innovative organizations are re-architecting applications for a Hybrid IT agenda, incorporating innovations such as hyper-scaling and aggregated infrastructure to reduce total cost of ownership improve service velocity and accelerate the pace of business.

Getting Started To Software Defined Transformation

Discovery & Assessment

Evaluate the needs to standardize, rationalize and consolidate existing data center assets for greater efficiency and economics, risks involved, and ROI achieved based on real time data and POC’s.

Strategic Planning & Architecture

Develop a roadmap for upgrading and consolidating infrastructure, and migrating applications and data, substantiated by futuristic architecture.

Getting Started To Software Defined Transformation

Software Defined Transformation

Modernize and Consolidate Data Center and Infrastructure Blueprint and continuously optimize it.

Operation Automation

Accelerate service agility by unifying administration and simplifying management

The very first step discovery and assessment with automated tool will clearly give you insights on the hardware inventory, application dependency and resource consumption.

You can make informed decisions to balance workloads and optimize resources and thereby to create a roadmap to guide the journey to Software Defined Organization. This roadmap should map people, process, technology change requirement, consider IT policy and operating model factors; and ultimately produce clear, data-based recommendations with a proposed execution plan to enable Software Defined Transformation to happen. Getting there will require significant upliftment of people skills, impart modern tools and technologies, transforming and migrating applications, integrating and orchestrating environments, automating and monitoring business services, enabling digital processes, and integrating data and security.

The Modernize and Consolidate Data Center and Infrastructure Platform Blueprint available in Synectiks Xformation platform helps businesses roll out new IT systems and practices to meet the increased agility and price-performance demands of the digital enterprise. By following the blueprint’s and Powerful automation you can reduce workload and technology sprawl, streamline operations, and improve automation, so you can respond to the needs of the business more efficiently, quickly and cost-effectively.

Synectiks Xformation platform can help you

  • Reduce CAPEX and OPEX by consolidating infrastructure, pooling resources and eliminating stranded capacity
