We’ll help you get to a place where your IT infrastructure is agile, invisible and cost-effective – without sacrificing security and control. It will also turn your IT team into heroes.
What is it and why is it important?
It’s all about moving away from the old-style, legacy, ‘single machine’ architecture towards a unified, always-on architecture where compute and storage services can run in any virtual machine at massive scale. If more storage or compute capacity is required, you just add another node – non-disruptively, one at a time.
When you move towards an architecture that makes your IT infrastructure invisible with an enterprise cloud platform that delivers the agility and economics of the public cloud – without sacrificing the security and control of on-premise infrastructure, you can focus on delivering flexible IT services that facilitate growing your business (rather than hindering it).
The benefits of transforming your datacenter into a software-defined one.
Ease of deployment and scalability
- adding resources one node at a time enables datacenter growth to match business demands
- quickly develop new apps/services with minimal upfront investment, and later scale to keep pace with any successful project
Predictable costs and lower OpEx and CapEx
- linear scale‐out architecture makes it easy to accurately forecast IT requirements and project costs
- single appliance integrates server and storage lowering datacenter equipment and power/cooling costs
Better agility and efficiency
- Single infrastructure runs all applications at high performance – eliminating inefficient datacenter silos
- Storage control logic is decoupled from physical resources by delivering storage controllers as flexible VMs with enterprise storage services provided via software
Flexibility, simplicity and choice
- A building block approach eliminates complexity while scaling resources with a single pane of glass management service
- Expand resources, one node at a time, which eliminates overprovisioning and enables the independent scaling of server and storage resources, to match workload demands
