Service providers are optimizing service deliveries using scalable and elastic virtual system infrastructures. Doing this requires extensive synergies between the physical infrastructures being deployed and the software they are supporting. Providers have choices in how they design and deploy these elements. To explore these choices ACG Research analyzed the characteristics of the three major architectures that are currently available. ACG found that the open and model-driven infrastructures significantly outperform the two other architectures providers can consider.

This webinar will highlight the motivations driving operators to pursue these designs; outline the characteristics of the alternatives available in supporting them; highlight the economic dimensions of each in supporting top service provider use cases; and showcase the attributes of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise open, model-driven infrastructure blueprints in supporting providers’ goals. Attendees will gain a clear appreciation of the value of model-driven infrastructures in achieving the agility and efficiency service providers require moving forward.
