Companies should strive to build a highly efficient infrastructure, an IT framework that will serve their present and future needs. As a result, organizations are migrating their workloads to the cloud.
Several key factors play a part in considering new IT infrastructure solutions. This includes cost, uptime, and infrastructure complexity, all of which influence the type of infrastructure that will be deployed.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is increasingly being implemented by businesses.
HCI is a single system combining computing, networking and storage, making management more straightforward. Running on standard servers, HCI systems steer clear of specialized hardware and inefficient silos. The following will discuss six other key benefits HCI can offer your company.
Although HCI is not infrastructure based in the cloud, it is a perfect fit for these times. Nowadays, everyday business tasks such as maintaining a contact database and document backup & storage are increasingly becoming cloud-hosted. An HCI framework supports this approach because its design is flexible and simplified. HCI disposes of hurdles like silos that delay development, allowing an organization to increase the speed of its operations.
Combining virtualized computing and networking, HCI platforms can integrate them with software-defined storage. Whether cloud-hosted or by a data center, software deployment can be the same. Thus, an HCI framework is a great fit for companies planning to implement a hybrid system. IT teams can install applications in their data centers, then implement backup and storage in the cloud.
The tracking and monitoring of hype converged infrastructure is easier because HCI products typically feature analytics software. Thus, IT staff can more easily monitor workloads and determine ways to optimize resources and improve performance. This can usually be done from a single user-friendly dashboard, easing the analytics and reporting crucial to every business.
