    Hyperconvergence Goes Beyond the Hype

    Hyperconverged systems will take on a larger role within data center infrastructures as business requirements drive further simplification of infrastructure and time to value within IT departments.  Virtualization has been a driving force for hyperconvergence, especially as virtualization exposed the inefficiencies of SAN storage and the need to virtualize the storage and network layers.

    In 2015, IT organizations consolidating data centers and deploying new application workloads will be evaluating hyperconverged infrastructure to replace aging server and storage components — disrupting the status quo and impacting the IT ecosystem.

Information technology is a key competitive advantage for organizations of all sizes. To be responsive to business requirements, IT needs to be agile and scalable. And, to ensure that IT can adapt to ever-changing business requirements, infrastructure and operational expenses need to be cost-effective to fund and enable innovation. At the same time, IT services are expected to be continuously available and ubiquitously accessible.

The following slides depict some of the drivers informing these 2015 predictions, according to Jesse St. Laurent, vice president of product strategy at SimpliVity, a leader in hyperconverged infrastructure for the software-defined data center.

SimpliVity delivers the best of both worlds: cloud economics with enterprise performance, protection and functionality. The company provides software-defined infrastructure packaged on industry-standard x86 systems, providing abstraction, pooling and automation of IT resources and services.
