Of what use can a hyperconverged infrastructure be?
Hyperconvergence regroups computing, storage, network and software functionalities into a single system that often comes in the form of a ready-to-use x86 hardware.
It simplifies the management of your data infrastructure and makes it more cost-efficient, as opposed to more traditional systems.
An HCI is easily scalable and will grow based on the changing IT needs of a business.
An HCI, for what?
Thanks to this software-based approach, a hyperconverged infrastructure can have numerous applications. Here are the most common ones.
Databases & critical app for companies.
Databases et other critical applications for businesses require the utmost availability and reliability. An HCI is the optimal setup for that, and it can easily adapt to and scale with the organization’s needs.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
With a VDI, the operating system isn’t on the local computer but on a server. This can also be used for a ‘light’ client, a desktop computer, a laptop or even a tablet. An HCI makes the VDI management and extension easier.
Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO).
Resources management can be complicated in a traditional setup, especially when it comes to data storage. An HCI makes remote management a lot easier.
Data securing & Disaster Recovery.
An HCI simplifies data protection thanks to backups duplicates on the platform and via a shared management interface.
With Edge Computing, functionalities such as computing, and storage are placed closer to end points such as POS or IoT. And there usually isn’t an IT personnel there. Configuring and managing the system has to be as easy as possible – hence why an HCI is the ideal solution for Edge Computing.
Hybrid clouds allow you to store some data in your own data center and some in a public cloud. In a multi-cloud approach, cloud services are usually picked on a case-by-case basis. Whether it’s hybrid cloud or a multi-cloud approach, an HCI allows to simplify the system. An HCI is the cornerstone of a business’ cloud.
Test / Dev Environment.
Management independent infrastructures dedicated to development and tests is often complex. An HCI usually makes it easier to rationally manage source codes in separate environment.
Reducing the number of physical servers is always hard to plan. Migrating existing workloads is made easier when using hyperconvergence.
Small businesses become more operationally efficient, make better use of their infrastructure et improve their ROBOT IT and server virtualization.
It allows medium enterprises to focus on VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure), improve their operational efficiency, make better use of their infrastructure and increase servers’ virtualization.
Large companies always work on improving their operational efficiency, securing their data and their management, VDI follow ups, installing private cloud infrastructures and new platforms that allow them to close the gap between traditional infrastructures and public cloud services.
