There is a major shift towards scale-out deployments in datacenters. Scale-out is driven by a new era of software (On-Prem Cloud, HPC, AI/ML, Containers, VMWare Virtualization, VDI, etc.). However, organizations are facing significant friction with the onboarding, provisioning and management of their physical hardware. Hardware is an expensive and difficult resource to deploy within a data center, driving organizations to move to the cloud.
