Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Federal Government


The Federal Government faces daunting challenges: agencies are required by law to serve an ever-growing body of constituents, and agencies are deploying IT globally. In addition, mandates require the adoption of new applications and infrastructure, which IT leaders need to integrate with current systems. The entire system needs to be secure, as cyber-attacks become more common and sophisticated. Finally, departments have to complete their mission while staying within budget.


HCI powered by vSAN can help by centralizing management, securing data with FIPS 140-2 validated encryption and powering a digital foundation from branch to core to cloud.


VMware protects your existing SAN/NAS storage investments by allowing you to uniquely augment traditional storage with VMware vSAN to create a powerful HCI solution with multiple storage tiers and to increase operational efficiencies across those storage systems. VMware Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM) extends from HCI to SAN to simplify storage operations, dynamically adjust service levels, and improve resource utilization through the familiar vSphere Client.
