The basic function and expectation of IT is to fulfill the day-to-day technology needs of the enterprise, support innovation and ensure a positive user experience for employees and customers. This requires a certain amount of time, money, and resources to be done correctly, but the unfortunate reality is that many IT teams are being asked to do more with less these days.
Today, work doesn’t just happen at the office. To stay competitive and increase productivity, enterprises around the globe are looking to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) with VM support to provide increased flexibility compared to conventional hardware-defined infrastructure.
The administrators of today’s virtual machines are tasked with what may seem practically impossible. The complex system requires multidomain experience under the constant pressure of supporting both traditional and modern applications, the nonstop battle against VM sprawl, and the ever-present need to cut costs.
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.
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.
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.
