State and local government agencies have a mandate to support their constituents with the best solutions possible. But modern technologies can be expensive, out of reach of limited government budgets. Yet traditional, hardware-centric infrastructure comes with a high price of its own, requiring time-consuming management, and putting performance at risk.
VMware vSAN allows you to do more with less, with a “build as you go” model that allows you to leverage prior investments and evolve to the cloud at your own pace. With vSAN, you can take the next step toward a modern, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) while using tools and solutions you’re already familiar with. Improve ROI, strengthen security, and streamline management so you can better serve the people who depend on you.
