Ask any business what they would like to receive from their IT department and you’re bound to hear some of the same answers across the board:
Reliability – Scalability – Ease of use – Availability – Simplicity – Flexibility – Performance
This is why many companies are turning to hyper-convergence solutions to meet their IT needs.
Hyper-convergence infrastructure is a cloud-enabled process that stimulates performance, availability, and reliability within a singular data center. It is a software-driven appliance that helps to meet the needs and the expectations of IT departments.
In contrast to converged infrastructure, a hyper-convergence infrastructure adds an element of automation in which computation, storage, and networking cannot be separated and are easily expanded for deployment.
Hyper-convergence systems can work on almost any database including SQL and Oracle servers, virtual desktops, analytics and data profiles, web servers, and collaboration tools such as SharePoint and Exchange.
A hyper-convergence infrastructure will cut management time significantly and free up team members to focus more on tasks that are important to the company’s growth and bottom line.
The benefits of a hyper-convergence infrastructure include:
1. Enables greater focus on specialized tasks due to fewer IT issues.
2. Reduces storage costs with a software-defined solution.
3. Enhances data-center efficiency with scale-out architecture that’s quick to deploy.
4. Ensures redundant environment at head office.
