Why IT needs hyperconvergence


Want to know why hyperconverged systems are making such a huge splash in the market? columnist Rob Enderle explained it pretty well in a March article titled All hyper-converged solutions are not created equal. It takes some effort, he says, to “weed out the providers who are long on marketing and sales promises, but short on having a competitive solution” (and amen to that!) But it’s worth it, Enderle adds, because “firms that have snow.jpguccessfully deployed hyper-converged solutions rave about them and it is almost like a religious rebirth. The speed of deployment, reliability and sheer lack of aggravation is massively different in a hyperconverged shop, and, though you wouldn’t expect it, the agility is actually amazingly pronounced, allowing these shops to better compete with offerings from some of the larger cloud providers.”

Well, I don’t know that I’d use a phrase like “religious rebirth,” but Enderle’s got a point. There’s tremendous enthusiasm for hyperconvergence among adopters of the technology, and the number of organizations that are looking into it for their next data center refresh is growing fast.

More reasons why hyperconvergence is hot

Actually there are lots of other reasons, beyond the ones Enderle mentions, why hyperconvergence is getting so much attention. The right hyperconverged solution can help you improve operational efficiency by eliminating data islands and reducing overprovisioning. It can reduce the cost of disaster recovery. And by simplifying management tasks, it can free up staff for innovation.

A new survey from ActualTech Media looks at the main drivers for hyperconvergence in some depth. If you have a few minutes, take a look at the executive summary: Hyperconverged Infrastructure in the Modern Enterprise. While you’re there you can register to get the full report, which I’d highly recommend. It’s a great overview of how and why your industry peers are leveraging hyperconvergence now, including:

  • The most pressing IT challenges that companies are facing, and how hyperconverged solutions can help
  • The use of hyperconverged systems for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and remote office and branch office (ROBO) deployments.
  • The top potential benefits that companies are looking for in hyperconverged systems.
