With the rise of cloud technology and growing distribution of data center workloads across branches and remote locations, the need to extend the integrity and resilience of on-prem data centers beyond their four walls is increasingly important.
Cloud technology is providing the agility, access and innovative IT services that businesses are using to compete in the market—there’s no getting around it. More and more businesses are moving toward cloud integration and a decentralized infrastructure.
So the question isn’t whether or not to move to cloud, it’s how do you extend the integrity of the on-prem data center to a hybrid multi-cloud environment?
Gartner’s January Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure report notes:
“HCI vendors that historically were data-center-focused have begun to target the needs of remote office and edge environments, previously only served by niche vendors. Small remote office and edge deployments require less storage capacity, fewer compute resources and fewer features, but benefit greatly from centralized management and high-availability designs.”
Leaders in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant are integrating compute and Network Fabric, cloud-based management, and third-party hypervisors through a single data and storage management platform.
