INITIATIVE OVERVIEW 


Traditional data centers have been constructed with siloed infrastructure layers, purpose-built hardware and fragmented management, resulting in complex deployment and operations, and slower delivery of IT services and applications. A hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) modernizes this traditional data center to provide the operational flexibility that today's organizations require.

HCI transforms industry-standard x86 servers with directly attached storage into cost-effective, highly scalable building blocks with software-defined compute and storage, which can be seamlessly extended with virtual networking and unified management.

 

Modernizing infrastructure with VMware's Software-Defined approach helps IT:

  • Accelerate business responsiveness with faster deployment, streamlined operations and better scalability.
  • Evolve infrastructure without risk by extending HCI virtualized networking and automated management with a natively integrated hyper-converged solution to significantly reduce configuration and management risks.
  • Prepare for the multi-cloud era with a solution ready for enterprise and next-gen applications and new server and storage technologies.
  • Unify data center monitoring and management across a virtualized stack for better informed IT decision-making and complete, enterprise-wide visibility.
  • Lower total cost of ownership through server-side economics, on-demand scaling, simpler management and data center consolidation.
