Software is eating hardware. From the established enterprise software vendors (e.g RedHat, SAP, VMware) to the sprawling software startup world with daily killer app introductions, software is driving innovation and efficiencies in enterprises and across markets. And, more and more hardware functionality is getting “software defined” – from SDNs to hyperconverged appliances – virtualizing functionality to run as software on the server; all this puts greater demand on the quality and performance of server solutions. Line of Business workflows and applications define increasingly demanding requirements for supporting IT infrastructure and service level agreements (SLAs) delivered by IT. While our roots are strongly planted in infrastructure, Datatrend have extensive expertise and services facilitating software leverage in the following areas:
