HYPERCONVERGENCE HAS EVOLVED RAPIDLY TO REACH THE MAINSTREAM.
Flexible, integrated compute and storage infrastructure is central to a firm's ability to do business in a marketplace shifting with changing customer expectations. In its heyday, virtualization offered flexibility but soon turned into just another silo — something we see today in every data center. Increasing levels of virtualization created more complexity across data centers than anticipated or desired. Hyperconverged infrastructure solves this problem. Factors boosting the HCI market include:
• A growing ecosystem of certified business-critical applications
• Enabling on-premises IaaS and hybrid cloud
• A lower cost of operation that accelerates deployment
• Scalable infrastructure
