About converged infrastructure
In today's world of information, IT has become one of the essential components of organizations. To integrate global e-commerce, supply chain, global distribution network, and other critical business process, IT has turned out to be an inseparable entity for organizations. Organizations need high level of flexibility, cost reduction, and performance across their IT infrastructure. Converged infrastructure can ease the burden of deploying and managing networks, servers, storage, and other applications for the data-driven businesses. Rapidly evolving large volume of unstructured data and application usage are difficult to scale and manage cost effectively. With an increase in information, driven by mobile content, new applications, and social media, organizations need to upgrade their existing IT infrastructure.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global converged infrastructure market to grow at a CAGR of 31.3 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Organizations constantly invest in datacenter transformation that is committed to software-defined technologies. Converged infrastructure is designed based on software-defined technologies. Vendors constantly upgrade datacenter components at each level of data layer by developing software to define storage, server, and networking functions for various requirements of end users with an aim to achieve optimization of all components. Software represents the role of installed applications and supports infrastructure that allocates storage and assigns servers. This has drastically reduced the cost of installing different servers and storage for different applications. This type of architecture is offered in single-stack solutions.”
According to the report, the low cost of maintenance is one of the key factors driving the market. Converged infrastructure has drastically reduced the extra cost associated with energy, coolant, and hiring IT staff. The implementation of converged infrastructure also reduces the need to use extra servers and storage during the addition of new applications to a system, resulting in lower expenditure.
Further, the report states that budgetary constraints are a key challenge faced in the market, as organizations can be deterred by these significant costs.
