In this survey report from Nutanix, they asked a number of questions regarding the future
of the data center. These questions revolved around the use of cloud (both public and private), the deployment of hyperconverged infrastructure, and the future of certain open source tools. The questions that Nutanix sought to answer included:
- Where are organizations in their journey to cloud?
- Do organizations truly understand what “cloud” means?
- How far along the path are organizations with regard to data center operational maturity?
- Has the deployment of hyperconverged infrastructure had any noticeable impact on IT operations or the business?
- Are respondents changing the types of applications they operate? For example, is there a movement toward open source databases and away from traditional solutions?
This report provides answers to these questions and more.
