Gartner recently revealed that IT currently faces an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 10% in server workloads; 20% in power demands; 35% in network bandwidth; and an astonishing 50% AAGR in storage.

However you no longer have to simply keep pace with that growth as SolidFire have designed a solution that solves the problems of today whilst performing most storage management tasks more than 4x faster and lowering TCO by more than 65%.

SolidFire’s ‘Next Generation Data Centre’ design involves a unified approach in applying five architectural principles across each layer of the data centre framework. This approach affects the software, processes, and people supporting the entire delivery stack.

You can’t run a modern datacentre with yesterday’s technologies. The Next Generation Data Centre delivers all transformation capabilities you need to deploy new applications faster, more securely, with greater agility, and more cost-efficiently.

SolidFire have designed a guide that introduces five architectural principles guiding the development of the next generation datacentre. It describes key market influences leading a fundamental enterprise IT transformation and the technological trends that support it.
