Digital transformation is paramount to the success of businesses in today’s modern world. The requirement to support large amounts of data, coupled with the need for cloud storages, means current IT infrastructure is slowing business down as it struggles to match the demand. Hyperconverged infrastructure will help you on your digital transformation journey.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure is a software-defined IT infrastructure that virtualizes all components of a more traditional hardware-defined system. HCI includes, but is not limited to, virtualized computing, software-defined storage and virtualized networking.
HCI is very flexible because of an intelligent software called hypervisor. Hypervisor provides workload adjacency and management. When compared with a converged infrastructure, the benefits of HCI’s are clear to see.
What are the benefits?
Lower cost: HCI’s are significantly cheaper. As components are integrating, the cost of power use, maintenance and software footprint are all reduced.
More effective: Using a HCI will save you a lot of time. They install in far less time than a traditional IT infrastructure. Furthermore, automation makes management more simple.
Performance: HCI’S provide very high levels of performance, even with the most exhaustive of workloads.
Multi-cloud: HCI’s significantly reduce the time and cost involved in transitioning to a hybrid cloud. It also makes it easier to move data between servers and the public cloud.
Security: HCI is more secure than other options. Disaster recovery and backups are built in to the infrastructure.
