Recently IDC spoke with organizations about their experiences running workloads on the Cisco HyperFlex hyper-converged platform. This paper shares the results of that study, highlighting:

  • Baked-in backup and recovery tools for HCI

    Along their quest for greater agility, many of today’s organizations are reimagining core IT architecture. But while highly virtualized, hyper-converged infrastructure can quickly provide competitive advantages, it also changes the viability of legacy backup and recovery tools; and in some cases, can render them obsolete.

    Dive into this IDC and Gartner-backed report to learn how to select HCI platforms that prioritize data backup, availability, and recovery – and, in some cases, come with these tools already baked in.
