Networking for Hyperconverged Infrastructure – a critical third leg of the stool

Presented by

Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst 451 Research and Mat Mathews, Co-Founder & VP, Product Management, Plexxi

About this talk

Private cloud and data center modernization projects are driving the rapid growth of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). Initial deployments of HCI typically focus on a single application type, like VDI, however, thanks to the ease of deployment and strategic value of the solution they quickly expand to support a broad range of multi-purpose workloads. Storage and compute technologies have rapidly evolved over the last several years to enable this agility, but networking has remained relatively unchanged for decades. To support the dynamic and strategic nature of HCI, networking must evolve to keep pace. Join this webinar to learn how HCI and a next generation network work together to: • Create an elastic pool of storage, compute AND network resources • Enable application and business agility • Easily scale capacity when and as needed • Improve operational efficiency across storage, compute and network teams • Reduce CapEx and, more significantly, OpEx • Reduce organizational risk
