Consequently, the satisfaction level of business stakeholders will increase, business become more competitive and better outcomes. By 2020, Gartner predicts that 20% of business-critical applications will move to hyperconverged infrastructure. Hyperconvergence is an IT framework that consolidates storage, computing and networking into a single system with an objective to reduce data center complexity and improve scalability.

 

Main components of hyperconverged platform:

  • Virtualized computing
  • Software-defined storage
  • Virtualized networking
  • Standard servers

 

HCI advantages:

  • Simplify management of hardware and software resources

  • Desktop virtualization (VDI)
  • Enterprise applications (Exchange, SharePoint, SAP, S/4HANA, etc.)
  • Enterprise databases (SQL, Oracle, SAP HANA)
  • Server virtualization • Big Data applications (Splunk)
  • VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) on Dell EMC VxRail Private-/Hybrid-/Multi-cloud
  • Dev/Test environments, Container Services Pivotal (PKS)
  • AI/Machine Learning, Data Inferencing
  • Remote office/Branch office
