Let’s take a look at some of the technologies that can help your organisation achieve Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) — and the processing power needed to ensure maximum productivity and agility for improved Virtual Machine (VM) density and lower overall costs.
As businesses continue to scale their offerings, software-defined storage solutions can help evolve infrastructure without causing disruptions. One of the key benefits of investing in a modern storage solution such as this is security.
Having a reliable and secure system is critical as organisations expand and collect analytics to track operations better, monetise existing offerings and make more informed decisions. In addition, management capabilities will be a game changer, reducing the amount of software needed to execute an activity — while also streamlining integration processes.
All-flash optimised, software-defined storage solutions, such as VMware vSAN, can help your business confidently secure data, easily manage operations and quickly adopt HCI.
You may have written this option off, believing new technologies are expensive. But it’s important to understand that older systems lack sufficient storage performance and limit Input/Output (I/O) — potentially wasting processors and memory.
To rapidly deliver modernisation across your mission-critical workloads requires an updated data center. Investing in newer technologies can you’re your business in the long run by:
Solutions that combine memory and storage — and maintain speed and agility while lowering the cost of running virtual workloads — will help your business meet both capacity and performance needs.
For example, Intel Xeon Scalable processors, when combined with Optane Solid-State Drives (SSDs), accelerate applications, allow larger data set deployments, and offer real-time analytics and insight into memory pools. This helps IT architects spend less time evaluating, selecting and purchasing supporting hardware, and more time on preparing for the future.
Virtualisation and HCI are transforming the ways businesses operate by simplifying maintenance, reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and increasing IT agility without wasting memory performance — lowering the overall cost per VM. In fact, solutions such as Intel Optane combined with VMware vSAN can result in 2.5x more VMs per cluster and up to 2.3x better price per performance.
When your teams have the tools they need to streamline complex processes with automatic verifications and benchmarking, they’ll have more availability to focus on innovation.
