3 Compelling Reasons to Consolidate on Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI)
If your IT organization continues to struggle with issues like data center sprawl, overwhelming complexity due to manual processes, or managing outdated arrays and the associated resource time and money sink, have you asked yourself why?
Uncover the three most common paths organizations like yours take to:
- Help calm the complexity
- Lower costs by gaining back the much-needed agility of operations and provisioning—all from familiar tools in a central view
- Get ready for hybrid cloud
Advantages of Hyperconvergence vs. Traditional, Three-Tier Architecture
Eliminate manual processes and the need for siloed operational expertise on your team. Now, a single, converged IT team can monitor and manage resources and improve storage capabilities. Plus, with HCI, IT resources are presented as pools of storage that can be dynamically allocated to deliver the right amount of capacity, performance, and protection.
Reduce your CAPEX by using a scale-up/scale-out architecture that requires only industry-standard x86 servers, not expensive, purpose-built networking. Then simply add capacity as needed with no disruptions. With HCI, you avoid vendor lock-in and eliminate overprovisioning, meaning greatly reduced infrastructure spending across your data center.
Be more responsive to rapidly changing business needs. Set up hardware in a few hours; spin up workloads in minutes. Accelerate the performance of business-critical applications like relational databases. HCI scales better than traditional infrastructure. It enables a future-proof IT environment that allows you to scale up and scale out to easily meet specific application needs.
