Do you need to handle heterogeneous loads in your environments?

The adoption of new models of technological infrastructure by companies has generated hybrid environments. The implementation of solutions in the public or private cloud, and the need to reuse its own infrastructure, has generated heterogeneous technological environments. This IT complexity experienced by many companies fragments infrastructure and applications.

‍By having dispersed IT resources:


  • Reduce visibility:

Having a heterogeneous infrastructure, IT teams must divide efforts to manage all the environments in which the organization’s operations are carried out. Keeping your attention on various processes reduces the visibility of the status of each one and the detection of problems and errors can be delayed.


  • ‍They increase costs:

‍Managing heterogeneous loads requires a greater amount of resources and personnel, so costs can rise considerably for the company.


  • The risks are diversified:‍

Dispersed infrastructure increases the risk surface for a business. A large amount of vulnerability is difficult to manage and requires more resources to implement the appropriate solutions.


Although migration to cloud platforms reduces operating costs and improves application performance, these risks open up when the organization’s infrastructure is not at the appropriate level.

‍Today, heterogeneous workloads are one of the biggest challenges for IT vendors. Given the existing risks of having a dispersed infrastructure, experts must find solutions that reduce risks and carry out sustainable management of all environments.

‍The company’s network must be able to handle heterogeneous resources without increasing costs or risking business continuity.
