Data Center Complexity and Increasing Business Demands
Data centers have become increasingly complex over the past couple of decades. They contain servers and storage from several manufacturers, an evolving mix of networking technology, and multiple hypervisors. This has created management challenges, deployment delays, and escalating operational costs.
At the same time, business units are demanding more from technology. Business users looking for a competitive advantage want to deploy new applications quickly. Additionally, those users need their systems to scale as quickly as the business grows. There is no tolerance for delays.
The Data Center Redefined for Agility, Scalability, and Simplicity
Converged and hyperconverged infrastructure systems have emerged to address some of the greatest challenges in the data center. These systems combine servers, storage, networking, and hypervisor into a single solution and allow for consistent automation.
These systems are created to work together, which eliminates configuration and compatibility issues. This allows your team to deploy systems faster, scale applications quickly, and simplify management. Your team can focus on innovation and supporting the business instead of focusing on operational tasks.
Converged and hyperconverged infrastructures deliver:
- Accelerated hardware deployment
- Fast application implementation
- Simplified management
- Reduced operations costs
- Near-instant scalability
