Modern data centers contain any number of technologies -- the ingredient list is long. But what defines the concept of modern IT? Is it the hardware you put in or something more abstract? It may be a little bit of both, says Bob Plankers, cloud and virtualization expert at a large university in the Midwest. Where converged infrastructure helps one data center, it may fail at another -- the same goes for cloud computing.
Christine Cignoli, managing editor for TechTarget's Modern Infrastructure magazine, sat down at the Modern Infrastructure Decisions conference for this video chat with Bob to talk about converged infrastructure and cloud and what makes up a modern data center.
