Servers and Storage | HCLTech


The data universe has grown exponentially over the last decade with the emergence of Machine Learning driven Artificial Intelligence, Analytics and Edge Computing. IDC estimates 175 Zettabytes of data to be stored by 2025 from ongoing digital transformation. As organizations tend to move towards consuming this data intelligently, Cloud and data center infrastructure will need to become fast, smart, efficient, and cost effective.

IT organizations are focused on building flexible, scalable, and cost-effective, frameworks that move IT to an as-a-service model. HCLTech understands these complexities and offers a holistic approach to address infrastructure requirements while considering existing product investments and architectural designs.

Themes that are transforming this space include software defined storage and networking, hyper-converged infrastructure, composable infrastructure, all flash, SSD, universal storage technologies, and data management. With its strong product engineering DNA and experience of working across the data center infrastructure, HCLTech is uniquely positioned to support its customers in their technology transformation journey.
