IN PICTURES: ARN's Converged Infrastructure roundtable (+39 photos)

Considered to be one of the top 10 technologies of 2016, converged infrastructure (CI) provides both technical and business efficiencies thanks to its pooling of IT resources and the automation of IT processes. It is an approach to datacentre management that seeks to minimise compatibility issues between servers, storage systems and network devices while also reducing costs for cabling, cooling, power and floor space. As such, this exclusive roundtable discussed the trends in the converged infrastructure space, as well as the latest technology advancements, and examine market opportunities for service providers.
