IT within corporations are seeing growing demands from the business units, meanwhile expectations are that they keep the cost in check. A traditional infrastructure does not always allow IT to run an agile, lean organization that aligns with the business units’ needs.
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) has emerged as a compelling story, as a modern infrastructure, that is both cost-effective and easy to use. HCI consolidates all functions into one single resource pool.
HCI has the possibility to offer IT a tool to utilize and benefit from a mix between public and private cloud, to meet the business unit’s demands.
Top priorities when choosing HCI architecture
- Hypervisor: As the hypervisor provides all the benefits of virtualization, from operational efficiency to increased availability, thus performance, eco-system (applications), compatibility, future-ready & extensibility is all things to consider.
- Software Stack: One of the implicit promises of HCI is that it will help you work more efficiently. In order to do so, choosing the right one is critical.
- Workloads: Understating the present and future needs for workloads will help identify the different requirements for the workloads.
