ooking to save money and free up IT resources? Then consider simplifying the management of on-premise infrastructure components through exploring hyperconverged infrastructure options. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has become a leading choice for businesses seeking fast, flexible, and cost-saving IT environments.
In fact, an IDC whitepaper proves the cost savings. Businesses using appliances like the Dell VxRail experienced an average 640% five-year ROI.
The benefits don’t end with cost savings over several years. Here are more reasons to explore hyperconverged infrastructure options:
Shorter Deployment Times
Traditional solutions can take months to source, configure, and test. But many hyperconverged infrastructure options can be implemented in weeks or even days. Many hyperconverged appliances come as a full solution, including a computer, storage, networking, and hypervisor. Then they are certified and updated together, using a simplified management interface.
Since each solution is architected unique to the needs of the organization, complexity is actually reduced. Processors, chipsets, and other components (including storage and networking) go through extensive interoperability testing prior to certification. This further increases reliability for hyperconverged infrastructure options.
When managing your entire stack using disparate components, you’re burdened with the testing and certification of the hardware and software yourself. Every component refresh or update requires a continued certification process as re-testing and re-certification is needed.
Hyperconverged infrastructure options give you the benefits of scalability without the headache. You won’t need to spend resources on expensive re-testing of existing components.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure Options
While knowing you need a simplified solution is one thing, choosing the right solution for your unique needs is another
Here are some of the leading hyperconverged appliances and solutions for organizations seeking hyperconverged infrastructure build-outs.
Each of the above hyperconverged infrastructure options, including Dell’s VxRail, provides on-premise support. But what if you want to take things one step further and move workloads completely off-site?
