• Keep It Simple Stupid - Hyperconvergence

Clear away complexity so you can focus on what’s important...

Enterprise level organisations have been slower to take up Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) but with the technologies proving their benefit and reliability in smaller organisations, this is beginning to change.

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) in the fourth quarter of 2016 Hyper-Converged sales grew 87.3% year-on-year, with global revenue for the year 110% higher than 20151.

There are many reasons why your business should consider a HCI solution. However, simplifying your infrastructure is one option you should consider when your core focus is meeting your service level efficiently and economically.

Easy deployment means better use of resource

HCI virtually eliminates debates and decisions over individual component procurement, and can be deployed quickly and easily; in fact, Dell recently announced improvements to its VxRail deployment features which allows customers to add and manage 10 or more appliances as easily as a single appliance. So instead of spending valuable IT resources deploying core infrastructure, you can focus on adding value to the business where it really matters, through configuration and usability.|

HCI needs considerably less physical space in comparison to traditional infrastructure solutions, so it’s a straightforward option for deployment in remote offices that can be then easily managed from another location.

In all likelihood, your infrastructure is going to come under more pressure over time, rather than less, and you’ll be expected to manage this as efficiently as possible. One of the core benefits of an HCI solution is its scalability; simply plug in an appliance node into a network and join to an existing cluster. No need for pre-integration, it’s ready to go.

Designed for the Cloud

You want the benefits of the cloud: data mobility, remote working, scalability without the costs, and virtualisation, whilst retaining data control and security, keeping costs down and not creating a headache for your IT team. HCI, unlike traditional infrastructure, has been designed for the cloud, and it’s simpler and easier to order, deploy, operate and manage.
