IT infrastructure is expensive. Not only is it a large CapEx outlay, but it is capital expenditure on a resource that is rarely used to its full potential, as companies over-provision to avoid disruption. A large on premise infrastructure can be a challenge to manage and optimise. The larger the data centre the bigger the challenge. IT teams can easily spend their day reacting to problems, instead of proactively addressing the future needs of the business. Technology is evolving at an aggressive pace. Traditional IT infrastructure can lack the agility in responding to the needs of the business, with an inability to deploy new technology fast enough. Organisations have neither the time or money to invest ahead in the infrastructure that can enable transformation and maintain a competitive advantage. Fortunately, there’s an easier way to meet your growing infrastructure needs and eliminate the time commitment and large capital investments in hardware, software and training.
Lenovo TruScale is a scalable consumption-based, comprehensive subscription offering, which allows you to pay and access on premise data centre hardware without having to purchase the equipment. How it works Lenovo infrastructure is deployed on an IT organisations premises. IT consumes compute resources as needed, like any other server in the rack. Every month, IT pays a fixed monthly baseline amount and a variable charge based on their consumption of the IT resources (similar to an electricity bill). Resources can easily be scaled up or down to meet usage requirements. Compute usage is metered and measured in kilowatts per hour (kWh), and at any time, customers can access a portal to look at usage (broken out by compute, storage & I/O) to track budgeted vs. actual use. Through this portal, IT organisations can log and manage service-related items.
