Innovate or Die: Key takeaways from the edge at Gartner’s Infrastructure and Operations Conference 2019

One of the highlights of Gartner’s recent Infrastructure and Operations Conference 2019 was the opening keynote. If I had to sum up what Gartner’s three expert presenters covered in three words they would be: “Innovate or die.”

Frankly, this is no big shock. Gartner (as well as IDC and Forrester) have been preaching about digital transformation for years – decades even. However, it is the accelerating pace of change that had everyone at IOCS 2019 really beating this “war drum” even louder and harder.

With the introduction of Acronis Software Defined Infrastructure 2.5 (formerly Acronis Storage) and the Acronis SDI Appliance, Acronis builds on its 15-year history as a trusted cyber protection partner (today storing over 200PB of user’s data in Acronis-operated data centers) to meet the needs of customers with varying and evolving needs. That is, given increased computing and data storage on edge devices today, both a universal and scalable software-defined infrastructure (SDI) solution is necessary to meets the rising demand for secure edge solutions.

Now MSPs and enterprises have access to Acronis’ solution, which not only enhances HCI with security but also delivers the number one choice for edge and edge-like workloads.
