If there are IT directors who have all the personnel and financial resources they need to do everything requested of them, we haven’t met them yet.
In fact, today’s IT teams are straining just to meet day-to-day business needs. In many cases, they’re hampered by traditional infrastructure architectures built with separated servers, storage and networking devices that cannot keep up with the efficiency, performance and scalability demands of the market and are time consuming to maintain and update.
In addition, significant trends in the industry continue to push IT teams with:
When you take all these industry trends together, it’s no wonder we’re moving quickly from converged infrastructure to a whole new level of efficiency, performance and affordability: hyperconverged networks.
Traditional converged infrastructure is the practice of taking separate compute, storage, network, server virtualization and other devices and bundling them for convenience. Hyperconverged infrastructure combines all these functions in one box equipped with innovative software.
IT professionals have been clamoring for a data center architecture that embraces cloud and economies of scale while being managed via software. Thus the hyperconverged infrastructure solutions of today include compute, networking, storage and server virtualization, and some other elements like backup software, snapshot capability, data deduplication, in-line compression and WAN optimization. And best of all, the entire system can be monitored and managed with a single pane of glass.
A hyperconverged solution enables cloud-like economies of scale without compromising performance, reliability and availability. Best of all, you can upgrade to a hyperconverged environment without replacing your current infrastructure. You can take a step-by-step approach and enjoy these benefits right away:
