• Finding Efficiencies With Integrated and Converged Systems

    The IT function of federal government agencies is in transition. Agencies are shrinking their hardware and becoming more efficient. They’re moving from siloed, inefficient, legacy systems to IT networks with architectures that promise greater flexibility, easier scalability and more usability.

  • Reaping the Benefits of Consolidated IT Infrastructure

    Most government agencies struggle through a piecemeal approach to technology, some of which is a natural result of having multiple, autonomous work sites. Departments often create independent solutions at each location. In networking, this can mean having hundreds of servers, each using multi-tiered architecture of hardware and software to integrate data center technology. The answer for many departments has been found in hyperconverged infrastructure – that is, consolidating infrastructure in one location with an all-software solution. By managing servers from a single pain, agencies are finding better ease of use, manageability, security, and compliance. 09/27/2018
