Standard Scenarios & Use Cases for Hyperconverged Infrastructure


IT organisations are increasingly expected to make infrastructure decisions that cultivate business opportunities rather than just support ongoing business operations. Adding to the challenge, they must find ways to instil a more proactive approach to IT operations, even as budgets generally remain relatively flat.

Hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, such as Dell EMC VxRail, have offered organisations a data centre technology that can enable the right balance of capital expenditures and operational efficiencies while still providing the requisite levels of performance and agility that organisations need across their data centre, cloud, and edge environments. In turn, this helps them leverage their IT environments to generate new business opportunities and drive better business results.


What is a Hyperconverged Infrastructure?


HCI continues to be a catalyst for data modernisation and transformed IT operations.


Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) integrates compute, storage and networking into a single appliance coupled with data management and consolidation capabilities. It can be scaled according to application needs, thus eliminating the need for a traditional Storage Area Network (SAN) or Network-Attached Storage (NAS).


The simplicity, scalability, and agility of HCI will continue to be a catalyst for data centre modernisation and help customers transform their IT operations.
