Of course, this digital transformation creates a massive amount of data that needs to be processed, managed, and stored—a concept called “data gravity.” If manufacturing businesses don’t adopt a new infrastructure to account for this explosion of data, bottlenecks will appear at every point of contact.
In order to drive operational efficiencies and shrink production & delivery times, manufacturers need to adopt a decentralized, pervasive infrastructure. This new architecture facilitates distributed workflows and removes data gravity barriers.
This brief explains how this new decentralized IT architecture, called Pervasive Datacenter architecture (PDx), enables infrastructure deployments matched to business needs, no matter the data center size, scale, location, configuration, or ecosystem interconnections.
