Why Hyperconvergence is Your On-Ramp to Cloud
Enterprises are struggling to keep pace in today’s fast-paced digital world. Information technology (IT) teams spend 80 percent of their time and resources on “keep the lights on” at their company. In addition, they are not “cloud-ready” where flexibility is critical to scaling IT environments rapidly.
As a result, enterprises are shifting toward hyperconvergence as an entry point into cloud. Hyperconvergence is a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources from scratch, supported by a single vendor.
Consider the increased benefits of hyperconvergence as you read the infographic below:
- It reduces complexity and simplifies IT environments
- It lowers capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operational expenditures (OPEX)
- It helps with operational savings because hyperconvergence eliminates redundant tools and processes so employees can focus more on value-add projects
- With hyperconvergence, one company achieves 100 percent business growth and another company deploys IT services 400 times faster
