Datacenter Transformation

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
