– getting IT’s act together
The traditional approach to server, storage and networking infrastructure works doesn’t it? Servers from one vendor, shared storage from another, networking from a third and each one managed individually.
Hyperconvergence, pioneered by Facebook, Amazon and Google says not. It’s the trend for small, medium and enterprise class businesses to look at ‘web-scale solutions’ in the way those companies have. It’s a heavily software led infrastructure system that tightly integrates computer, storage, networking and virtualization resources in a commodity hardware box supported by a single vendor.
And as IT is asked to do more, faster, and at lower costs, it needs these new approaches to deliver business applications and services at lower TCO. It needs datacenter infrastructure that delivers Cloud-like economics and agility, but with the security and reliability of on-premise solutions.
And that’s what Hyperconvergence delivers.
