Access "Can HP, IBM and Dell survive the cloud?"

Issue Overview

Modern Infrastructure - May 2013, Volume 2, Number 5

A few big server hardware vendors ruled the world of enterprise IT for years. Now, virtualization and cloud computing have changed the game and hardware is increasingly commoditized. Do HP, IBM and Dell still have the clout they used to?

Public clouds, following on the heels of widespread server virtualization, are handing another blow to server vendors and their shipment and revenue numbers. The cover story in this month’s issue of Modern Infrastructure explores this new dynamic, with a look at how hardware vendors are handling the shift—and what their options are to keep business booming. Some are considering converged infrastructure their future, while others are selling their wares to public cloud providers instead of enterprises.

This issue also covers the highlights of April’s Modern Infrastructure Decisions conference, including an interview with keynote speaker David Linthicum.
