    Aspirations for Scalable IT

    Cloud-scale, web-scale, scale-out and scale-in – these terms have been thrown around a lot in the last year. Enterprises want to mimic what large cloud giants like Facebook, Google and Amazon have architected: a highly responsive IT environment that can easily expand and contract as dictated by business requirements. And, they want it on the cheap. However, they are not willing to part with the resiliency they’ve grown accustomed to with traditional architectures and technology.

    Hyperconverged infrastructures — especially those that have familiar resiliency functionality, such as high availability, backup and replication — that enable building-block scale, and software-defined approaches will become more popular to those with scale aspirations.

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.
