|A global leader in the industry, SK Hynix is the third largest semiconductor company in the world. In response to dynamic market needs, SK Hynix revamped its existing infrastructure and workplace arrangements into an agile and flexible environment. As such, it established a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)–based workspace and software-defined datacenter (SDDC) initiated by its CIO and IT planning team. With the SDDC’s unified virtual infrastructure, mass data consolidation and analysis were simplified, additional purchases of hardware were minimized, and dependencies on third parties were significantly reduced. Built with cloud-based technology, a VDI-based workspace supports its employees with an advanced system to securely connect anytime and anywhere.|
By 2020, SK Hynix envisions an expansion of its SDDC and virtual workspaces, and by 2023, all affiliate companies under the SK Group are targeted to move its workload to the cloud environment. Through its incorporation of digital transformation efforts into its long-term business strategy, SK Hynix equips itself with future-ready approaches aimed to improve its competitive advantage.
