Challenges and Opportunities of Hyperconverged Infrastructure

- Wednesday, March 01, 2017

Hyperconverged infrastructure is among the fastest growing and most hotly competitive segments of the IT infrastructure market today. Much of the market adoption, education, and growth has been driven by smaller technology startups like SimpliVity that have capitalized on gaps within the portfolio of established vendors. It should be noted, however, that these large, established suppliers have reassessed their participation in this fast-growing market and are now redirecting resources and attention to the hyperconverged market. Focusing on technology differentiation will remain critical for SimpliVity during this time. Looking forward, there will be increased opportunities for hyperconverged systems to support greater scale, and more granular SLAs within mixed/diverse workload.

Decisions made within IT departments have never been more important to the broader business than they are today. IT departments must react quickly to new business initiatives that are designed to drive bottom-line improvements and generate new revenue streams. 

As a result, IT departments are increasingly looking for infrastructure that improves resource utilization rates while also addressing productivity and agility within the datacenter. Organizations around the world have turned to converged systems to achieve just such goals and helped turn converged systems into a rapidly growing market segment.

Hyperconverged systems are improving upon the realised benefits of first-generation converged systems by redesigning datacenter infrastructure and allowing customers to:

  • Collapse silos of storage, compute, and data management services into standard nodes of x86 servers.

  • Collapse silos of IT experts by allowing customers to leverage common virtualization tools to manage the vast majority (if not all) of the infrastructure tasks required to support virtualized workloads.

  • Reduce the need to deploy many types of dedicated appliances and separately licensable infrastructure within the datacenter, including data efficiency and data protection solutions.

Although the market for converged and hyperconverged systems remains relatively young, it is becoming increasingly clear that these scale-out and feature-rich systems are driving real benefits within datacenters around the world, impacting capex, and, more importantly, opex.
