What Can Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Do for Your Business?

By Kevin Wood |   Aug 15, 2019

Modern data centers are more efficient and high-performing than ever, but problems and failures still occur. The goal is to leverage the software defined data center (SDDC) to achieve optimal efficiency for the business. Incompatible hardware and an overabundance of solutions often prevent true convergence. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) links the entire data center to one comprehensive management system. HCI creates a seamless, robust data center environment, eliminating many virtualization challenges. With HCI, you can maximize performance and efficiency, and get a better return on your data center investment.

Key Flash Storage Trends That Could Reshape Your Data Center

By Kevin Wood |   Jul 25, 2019

In the past, users were forced to choose between HDDs with high storage capacity or DRAMs offering high performance. Advancements in NAND flash allowed for a new, comprehensive option: the flash-based SSD. NAND flash is a nonvolatile (NV) semiconductor memory device. Unlike DRAMs, NAND chips do not need a continuous power supply to retain stored data. Flash-based SSDs provide greater storage capacity and better performance and speed at a cost-effective price point.

Modern IT and HCI

By Kevin Wood |   Jul 18, 2019

Today's IT departments and data centers are drastically different than their predecessors. Virtualization has been the key driving force behind the changes. However, new technology and operations bring new challenges that must be resolved. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) helps IT departments solve many of the issues caused by virtualization. HCI works by linking every part of the data center and bring it all under one management platform. With HCI, both IT and the data center become more efficient and agile, resulting in increased performance and scalability.

Guide Your Enterprise's Digital Transformation with Storage-Class Memory

By Kevin Wood |   Jul 16, 2019

Many enterprises are undergoing a digital transformation as they move towards business models that collect and use data as a strategic digital asset. This information is used to drive better insights and improve agility, but as the demands for in-depth collection, analysis, and response grow older, technologies can’t meet the evolving requirements.

The Basics of Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI)

By Kevin Wood |   Jul 11, 2019

Over the past decade, drastic changes have taken place within the data center. Technological advances and innovative new products have revolutionized the way data centers operate. Virtualization is now a vital part of the modern software-defined data center (SDDC). While virtualization is enormously beneficial, it comes with a new set of challenges. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) resolves many of the efficiency, security, and scalability issues facing today's data centers.

Protecting Your Data in an All-Flash World

By Kevin Wood |   May 30, 2019

Companies worldwide are modernizing their data centers with efficient, all-flash storage arrays. All-flash storage solutions may offer different features, but they all provide better performance, scalability, and capacity over legacy storage solutions. They are more affordable than their traditional storage equivalents, making upgrading cost effective. With all-flash arrays, organizations can consolidate data and simplify their data management processes.
