HCI lifecycle management via integrated solutions

The pressure on business to act and adapt ever-faster also puts stress on the IT systems that underpin all the key business services.

An increasingly popular way to simplify this IT infrastructure is to use appliance-like solutions which combine software and hardware into an integrated platform.

One of the best examples of this is HCI.

Unfortunately, there are very few application software vendors who are also experts in hardware, and vice versa.

Explore this Freeform Dynamics white paper to look at the importance of taking a lifecycle view of HCI systems management and address the challenges it seeks to solve.

These are also closely related to: "HCI lifecycle management via integrated solutions"

  • Inside the growing use of, and increasing preference for HCI

    The IT systems landscape is changing. As digital transformation moves onwards, the technology infrastructure needed to provide the necessary applications, along with facilities such as user self-service, grows more complex and layered.

    As a recent world-wide survey of over 800 IT professionals showed, this means more infrastructure, in more locations and using more IT delivery models - which often creates a hybrid of traditional IT with public and private clouds.

    Fortunately, there are ways to reduce, or at least mitigate, that growing complexity. Access this report to look at one way that was highlighted in this study: the growing use of, and increasing preference for, HCI.

  • Hyperconverged storage: SAN for the masses

    As businesses seek to become more agile and adaptable, ready to meet an uncertain future, their IT plays an ever-greater role in this evolution.

    So how can organizations respond to this potential data deluge? The simplest solution is of course to buy more capacity.

    But the problem with that is, as more and more services and applications get added, it won’t be long before you have multiple separate ‘silos’ of data on your hands.

    With HCI, that all changes.

    Explore this white paper to learn why hyperconverged storage has been called SAN for the masses.
