The nature of business is changing. Driven to meet the rapidly advancing wants and desires of its customers, businesses are racing to adapt their way of doing business. This not only redefines IT, but the relationships between IT and the line of business. IT is responding to change with the adoption of cloud computing, and more recently, the adoption of open source cloud. Cloud computing has grown beyond the simple need for agile compute services, integrating technologies in storage, networking, security, management, automation, and applications. Let’s take a peek into the technology growth and the associated business advantages to see why open source cloud is best suited to meet the varied demands. We will also note where the enterprise data centers are heading next.
