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.
VMware vSAN is a leading software defined storage solution on the market today. Simple yet powerful, vSAN offers intelligent hyperconverged storage architecture that facilitates complete utilization of compute and storage resources, delivering them through a virtual common platform. This structural design not only initiates transformational change in how you host data, but also powers the leading hyperconverged infrastructure solutions today that is transforming data centers across the globe.
What is the VCDX Certification?
VMware is a leading software and services company focused on cloud computing and virtualization. It also develops and accredits some of the most prestigious certifications in the industry. These certifications are referred to as VCDX certifications. VCDX stands for VMware Certified Design Expert. This is for those that have earned a top tier certification from a VMware panel. For example, Cisco CCIE has always been recognized as a highly coveted certification in the networking discipline and VCDX is the equivalent in the virtualization space. Some people even think of this like getting a Ph.D. in virtualization. There are only 269 VCDXs across the globe. There are not very many VCDXs in the New England region and Mark Gabryjelski, WEI's Virtualization Architect & Ambassador, is the only VCDX in New Hampshire. He is VCDX #23.
By now you’ve heard about VMware vSAN—a software defined storage (SDS) solution that combines direct storage devices across a vSphere cluster to create a shared data area distributed across an enterprise network. With vSAN, the user is able to decide on the storage requirements, performance and availability and makes sure the policies put in place are upheld. These are not the only benefits of using VMware vSAN. Keep reading to discover four ways your enterprise can benefit from it.
The WEI engineering team thrives on solving our customer's toughest technology challenges. Often times these challenges are the first of their kind--meaning there are no google searches that will lead to a solution, the forums haven't covered it yet and the vendor/supplier teams are racking their brains to solve the unique challenge.
You’ve probably heard talk about virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS), but do you know what benefits it can offer your organization? While desktop virtualization isn’t a new concept, amazingly, these technologies have the power to improve user productivity and allow your team members to accomplish more at your enterprise. Read on for a look at VDI and DaaS, as well as ways you can put it to use at your company.
If you’re serious about making a successful move to hybrid cloud, now’s the time to make progress in each of these five areas.
Virtualization is the foundation for all Cloud based services, offerings, and changes to business operations and procedures. There are three (3) major areas in the data center where Virtualization exists to enable automation, auditing, and Cloud services. Let’s get started!
We talk to many IT organizations these days who want to know how to move their current data center operations to what many are calling a private cloud. They want to know how to transform their current virtual infrastructures into an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model, so that they can add efficiency, consistency, and a deeper understanding of the actual costs of running a data center and “serving” applications to the business.
