Hyper Converged Infrastructure

Increase agility and drive revenues with converged infrastructure

The modern datacentre challenge

The explosion of big data and data analytics, the rise of cloud computing and the growing importance of IT in business are just some of the challenges facing today’s datacentres.

Typically filled with numerous applications running infrastructure from different technology vendors, today’s datacentres can be complex when it comes to management, security, scalability and cost efficiency. In addition, it’s estimated 70% of IT budgets are currently spent on infrastructure maintenance leaving little room for innovation.

If you want to spend your time innovating, then you need to modernise the infrastructure components on which IT is built. But how do you modernise quickly and reliably? For the modern data centre, we believe that the best approach is to leverage converged infrastructure platforms.

In IT, you have two choices that can lead to successful outcomes.

Build to buy shift

BUILD

Infrastructure Oriented

Flexibility

Heterogeneity

Component Control

Legacy Optics

BUY

Outcome Oriented

Risk Reduction

Agility & Time to Value

IT Innovation

Lifecycle TCO Savings

You can build your own outcomes by individually sourcing compute, networking, storage and software, or you can buy your outcomes through integrated solutions.

Here’s a car analogy that helps illustrate the differences between integrating infrastructure yourself or buying converged infrastructure. Customers intuitively understand that it would make no sense to individually assemble a car from piece parts in their garage. We know that we could work with different suppliers and have them ship all the nuts, bolts, engine pieces, body, etc. to our house. And we could work on it every night trying to assemble that car. So why don’t we? Because we know that it’s simply not practical.

For time, quality, safety and low cost of ownership cars are built in modern factories and employ standardization and automation that results in fast deliveries, low cost of ownership and highest quality- we BUY them already assembled. The same can be said for your infrastructure.

In the past, customers built their own infrastructure and bought their applications, but increasingly now we see customers looking to invert that model. They want simple, easy to deploy infrastructure platforms, on which they can build and run the core business applications and which also provide a platform for deploying next-generation applications.

Converged infrastructure allows for both. It helps reduces the time and the cost and risk of deploying, configuring and managing hardware and software components separately and increases time to value for IT investments. Additionally, it’s essential that converged systems be built on technologies that are third-platform ready: like flash, scale-out, software-defined, and cloud-enabled systems.
