Why the operating system matters

Your OS can be the foundation that solidifies and unifies your IT infrastructure

In the early operating system (OS) days, they played a secondary role within the infrastructure. The OS was just part of the framework—an efficient way to interact with the physical hardware, the peripherals, and the subsystems. With the shift to cloud-based infrastructure, it feels like we’ve circled back to that time. Today, the operating system is often considered incidental to the cloud provider and available services.

Most IT departments just want an environment that is flexible, adaptable, resilient, and—above all—manageable.

In this e-book, read about:

  • What cloud adoption looks like in reality.
  • When cloud projects fail.
  • The meaning of "the OS is changing."
