Businesses are mounting an all-out assault on IT complexity. In an environment where new technology-enabled business models can erupt seemingly out of nowhere, shaking up bigstock-Business-people-in-the-office--129582602.jpgentire industries, IT leaders know they need to be able to move fast. When the next disruptor comes along or a new opportunity opens up, they don’t want to be tripping over a tangle of hard-to-manage hardware and platforms that don’t talk to each other.

The complexity challenge extends beyond core enterprise data centers; it’s increasingly urgent for small and midsize businesses, as well as larger companies with remote locations or branch offices. These organizations often struggle to access the expertise that’s needed to manage proliferating IT systems that demand complex configuration and time-consuming manual intervention.

In short, they need an infrastructure that simplifies operations and reduces the need for specialized expertise. That’s exactly what hyperconverged systems are designed to provide. These solutions are ideal for IT shops that need a better way to tackle tasks such as creating and maintaining VMs; managing virtual desktop infrastructure; or balancing workloads across public cloud, private cloud, and traditional infrastructure.

Hyperconverged systems pack a full set of data center resources – compute, storage, networking, and virtualization capabilities – into a single box. An integrated software platform provides unprecedented ease of management. You can update firmware and drivers in just three clicks, spin up a new VM in five, or add capacity in as little as 15 minutes. The simplified management interface means that these operations can be performed by an IT generalist. With some hyperconverged systems, you can even manage the appliance from a mobile device. The right hyperconverged solution will integrate with your existing infrastructure, so you avoid the risk of creating another technology silo in your data center.

Perhaps most importantly, hyperconverged infrastructure doesn’t just solve your IT problems today – it also lays a solid foundation for the future of your data center with Composable Infrastructure. Composability delivers true infrastructure as code; it’s the engine of the fully programmable, next-generation data center.
