Hyperconverged infrastructure represents the face of today's rapid IT evolution, in which enterprises seek efficient, streamlined technology to meet stringent business demands. Once a supportive, edge infrastructure, hyperconverged has matured into a primary infrastructure solution used in today's core datacenters. However, finding the right fit for hyperconverged in existing IT environments poses a challenge for many organizations.
Join 451 Research to understand the drivers behind hyperconverged adoption and learn how IT teams are using this technology to boost their business advantage.
This is the story of why one enterprise chose HCI and how the hype stacked up in their real world.
‘Cloud’ is a marketing term used to groups many offerings things that differ quite a bit from each other. Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is a little more specific than Cloud, but companies still find it has the same potential to be confusing and ambiguous. There are many different players in the market, each with their own view on why what they deliver is the real HCI.
Andrew Scott runs in house data centers for a large automotive engineering company. He and his team spent a fair amount of time working out the real benefits HCI brought and then, which of the many vendors should be shortlisted to test. They implemented HCI in 2017, this is some of what they learned along the way.
Modern infrastructure including All-Flash, Converged and Software Defined storage is the foundation required to support today’s multi-app, multi cloud datacentres.
How do you understand the cost and performance benefits it can provide and the positive impact this will have on your organisation?

Have you considered a move to converged infrastructure, but need to be convinced with solid return on investment (ROI) data? Respected industry analyst IDC interviewed global enterprises that use and rely on Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) to calculate its true business value. IDC found that each organization using this converged infrastructure earned an average return of 360% or about $32.7 million over a five-year period.
The comprehensive independent analysis includes a breakdown of business benefits in four key areas and shows how a unified compute platform:
•Increases business productivity with improved application performance, reduced provision time and faster time to market.
•Improves risk mitigation and user productivity with a high level of resiliency, performance and efficiency.
•Boosts IT staff productivity with decreased IT time to set up new infrastructure and launch new applications.
•Reduces IT infrastructure costs for the provision and deployment of compute, storage and networking resources.
Enterprises and service provider customers have more storage, networking, and cloud technology choices at their disposal than ever before, and aggressive technology adopters will gain a performance and agility edge over their rivals in 2017. All Flash Arrays, Object Storage and Disaster Recovery to Cloud/Disaster Recovery as a Service are key technologies transforming the storage landscape. These new innovations account for a relatively small amount of storage revenue today, but will gradually displace traditional disk based storage systems, ultimately opening up opportunities for new innovators. The pace of change in networking technology provides the speed, capacity and agility demanded by cloud, IoT, social media, content delivery and the fabric that makes digital transformation possible.
Join Al Sadowski, Research Vice President for Infrastructure, as he dives into what’s accelerating the virtualization of network applications and how traditional vendors will need to transform their “innovation supply chain” to produce product equivalents to highly scalable cloud infrastructure.
Predictive analysis, mass provisioning, and building large, scalable clouds can all happen more quickly, less expensively, and with less risk when it's on the right infrastructure.
In this webinar you'll learn:
How to stair-step from simple digitization to innovation.

The advancements in scientific computing and healthcare are coming fast—from next generation sequencing onto precision medicine, “big data” and artificial intelligence. We’re embarking on a massive convergence of clinical analysis and information systems, and many are not prepared. With these advancements in technologies, comes higher demand for both compute and storage to degrees difficult to comprehend. An NCBI published study predicts that up to 40 exabytes of storage capacity will be needed by 2025 just to support the growth of sequenced human genomes.
Adapting to this exciting shift in science will require changes in the way we think about IT infrastructure. In this webinar, BioTeam’s Adam Kraut will discuss…
•How science changes faster than IT infrastructure, and what we can do to keep pace.
•Converged infrastructures and their impact on research productivity.
•How machine learning and microservices are changing the way we architect Cloud solutions.
In addition, you’ll hear how companies are already supporting HPC workloads in hybrid cloud environments to increase analytic throughput efficiently. These workloads supply adaptability to changing research needs, integration into existing resources, and scalability to support growing demand for both compute and storage capacity.

Infrastructure debt is gaining growing recognition as an asset class that can help investors secure attractive yields, good stability and valuable diversification over long horizons.
But it poses challenges as well as opportunities.
How well are these challenges understood? Should investors think about downside protection before moving into infrastructure debt?
Why should investors focus on core assets? And why should they avoid “infrastructure drift”?
How can manager selection impact on investment outcomes?
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is a hot topic in IT — now it’s your opportunity to find out what it’s all about, and whether it lives up to the hype.

To respond to the ever-increasing demand for faster innovation, organizations are looking to shift to a more agile, service-oriented IT model that leverages the hybrid cloud. Customers are looking for a modern infrastructure that is based on a software-defined platform, delivers enterprise capabilities, and establishes a common operational model across public and private.
Attend this session to learn how VMware Cloud Foundation provides a unified software-defined data center platform for the hybrid cloud. As an integrated stack that can be deployed on-premises or run as a service from the public cloud, VMware Cloud Foundation establishes a consistent operational model across clouds.
The era of Artificial Intelligence is here. Enterprises face an extraordinary opportunity to innovate and lead. However, real-world AI initiatives are often stalled by scale-out storage infrastructure complexities.
In this webinar we’ll explore new approaches to enable AI-at-scale for enterprises, delivering time-to-insight in hours rather than weeks. We will also cover details and customer successes with AIRI™, the industry’s first complete AI-ready storage infrastructure, architected by Pure Storage® and NVIDIA® to extend the power of NVIDIA DGX™ systems.
The move to the cloud is the start of a journey — one that will enable the transformation of every aspect of an organization, from IT to product development. But taking your existing infrastructure and just shifting it onto the cloud isn’t enough. You need to first evaluate strategies that optimize your cloud processes to increase the business value you’re getting from the AWS Cloud. However, without knowing which products and services to use and how to efficiently control their usage, costs on the Cloud can increase very easily.
