A typical data center has multiple generations of servers, operating systems, hypervisors, and storage devices—often from multiple vendors and designed around the concept of predefined, discrete workloads designed for specific tasks. But how can an enterprise accurately predict where (and how much) IT capacity is going to be needed at any given time?
It can’t—particularly when technology advances like cloud, analytics and mobility are resulting in record increases in data that must be analyzed, stored and optimized, creating the need to overprovision the data center to meet anticipated capacity demand. And that costs money in upfront capital expense (CapEx) and ongoing operating expenses (OpEx).
Two reasons why you should say yes to hyperconvergence
- Flexible capacity: Hyperconverged delivers dense nodes of compute, storage and network resources into a single integrated appliance that optimizes data center capacity.
- Orchestrated efficiency: Workloads can be provisioned with more automation and orchestration to better meet business demands.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) integrates storage, compute and networking into a single virtual structure, managed in scale-out clusters through a single interface. It powers the data center with workload-ready resources that can be deployed in hours instead of days. Essentially, it delivers more capacity in a smaller footprint that takes up less space in the data center and uses less of your data center resources.
