Hardware Solutions for the Cloud Data Center Environment

data-centers-hero

The Cloud Data Center is a rapidly evolving environment leading the way for how data center resources are provisioned to a diverse set of customer needs. The pace of change in the cloud data center can be observed in everything from the foundational technology the data center delivers to the supply chain orchestration that ultimately outfits the data center infrastructure. Managing this complexity into an optimized and evolved deployment model is both the challenge and opportunity for the cloud data center operators and the ecosystem that serves them. 

While “cloud native” has become a common term to describe software architectures that deploy in a cloud environment, Jabil believes a “cloud native” approach to the hardware infrastructure is equally necessary in today’s market. This is the driving force behind our Jabil Cloud business: to bring Jabil’s remarkable breadth of manufacturing and hardware development acumen to the cloud ecosystem. The core principle of cloud computing is to drive innovation by allowing companies to invest precious resources in their core competency rather than investing resources in traditional data center build-out. Jabil Cloud embraces this principle and brings it to cloud data center hardware infrastructure.  

Jabil Cloud has a portfolio of foundational server platforms that meet the majority of data center compute and storage needs. We then pair that server portfolio with a virtually limitless set of integration capabilities that leverages our DNA of 30+ years of Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) around the world at over 100 factory sites.
