IT Project: Hyper-converged infrastructure

The term hyper-convergence means different things to different people. But at its core, hyper-convergence brings together servers and storage network resources that are managed as a single unit using software. In some ways, it signals a return to a mainframe-like architecture before the rise of client-server, distributed computing model. In this e-guide, learn more about the benefits of hyper-convergence and how you can derive the greatest value from your investment in hyper-converged infrastructure. Plus, read about the movers and shakers in the hyper-converged market and why NVMe is a rapidly rising storage star.

  • CW ANZ June 2017: Flash makes a spash

    In this month’s CW ANZ, we find out why more and more Australian enterprises are now turning to all-flash storage technology to replace spinning disk storage systems, thanks to lower costs and reduced complexity. Sensing this business opportunity, Optus Business has teamed up with storage supplier Pure Storage to offer on-premise and cloud-based all-flash storage and services aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises.

    Also in this issue:

    From backup to data management: Beyond data backup, extracting more metadata to improve business processes and data management will become more important, says a senior Veritas executive

    Australian startups find their way in the cloud: Public cloud services have empowered Australian startups to scale up and go global from day one

    Getting past the hyper-convergence hype: While hyper-converged systems may imply different architectures based on the context, conceptually it refers to integrated technologies – servers and storage – that are managed as a single unit using software. We take a look at the key drivers for the development of hyper-converged solutions and how they will transform the way applications are delivered.

  • CW ASEAN: Hyper-convergence offers simple yet scalable storage
