ESG Research Report: Data Infrastructure Trends

Abstract:

The IT infrastructure landscape has transformed. The data center, once the central cog in the IT machine, is quickly becoming only a piece of a larger and more complex environment. Contemporary IT infrastructure is often distributed across multiple locations both on- and off-premises. This research study is intended to better understand the current state of IT infrastructure, including how the increases in scale and distribution of infrastructure environments are increasing IT complexity and otherwise impacting IT operations.

ESG Research Report: Network Modernization in Highly Distributed Environments

Abstract:

The broad adoption of public cloud services as a source and repository of business-critical data and the increasingly distributed nature of IT environments generally and workforces specifically are impacting network infrastructure in terms of both requirements and challenges. In addition to assessing how modern, distributed environments are impacting network requirements and subsequent architecture, it is imperative to understand how key initiatives like cloud and automation are driving and shaping network strategies. Against the backdrop of all these changes, what kind of interest are organizations showing in new networking technologies like WiFi 6, 5G, and SONiC?

ESG Research Report: The Transformational Rise of Active Archives

Abstract:

The digital economy is fueled by the seemingly unstoppable creation and insatiable consumption of data. To optimize costs, streamline management, and meet governance and regulatory requirements, organizations have traditionally archived non-production data on lower-cost storage tiers for years with little intention or need to reuse them. Things are evolving: The emergence and adoption of advanced digital transformation initiatives in recent years have placed data at the heart of the business and changed the nature of how archives can and should be leveraged. Rather than passive, “locked away” data sets, the past few years have seen the emergence of new requirements and solutions to make archives more “active” and leverageable to unlock business value.
