Some assets are better consumed in a subscription-based model than owned. Within an enterprise’s IT infrastructure, there are three excellent candidates: network equipment, including switches and routers; security equipment, such as firewalls and endpoint controls; and unified communication and collaboration (UCC) equipment. All of these are experiencing virtualization.
Virtualized infrastructures are easier to manage as a service. These subscription-based models bring several benefits for enterprises, including using what you want, when you want and how much you want. Furthermore, subscription-based infrastructure delivers cost savings, better compliance and risk management.
