Hyperconverged Infrastructure obliterates the complexities of traditional IT infrastructures by combining data center services in an appliance with tightly integrated compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources.
Combine the agility of public cloud infrastructure with the security of on premises hardware. A hyperconverged infrastructure is largely software-defined, allowing resources such as storage, networking and compute to be spun up and down rapidly through API calls. The result is a hugely scalable and cost-efficient infrastructure running on an efficient pool of x86 resources. As such, it stands in stark contrast to the traditional converged infrastructure, where each of the resources is typically handled by a component that serves a single purpose.
Why move to a hyperconverged infrastructure?
At Nubera, we believe all infrastructure resources should be delivered through a distributed, software defined and API first fabric. Hyperconverged infrastructure is a good fit as it natively integrates compute and storage into a single x86 based server deployed in scale-out clusters. This not only reduces power and space but also effectively eliminates storage complexity.
Some of the main benefits of hyperconverged infrastructure are:
- Lower cost up to 50% reduction in CapEx en OpEx
- Linear scalability
- Faster ime to market
- Up to 80% reduction in power, cooling and space
- Focus on the applications
With hyperconverged infrastructure you can start small and linearly scale as your demand for compute and/or storage grows. No overprovisioning of storage capacity or forklift upgrades and less time spent managing compatibility between servers and storage.
The first to coin the term “hyperconverged infrastructure” and current world leader, Nutanix natively converges compute, virtualization and storage into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence. At the heart of the Nutanix technology lies the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, enabling customers to marry the benefits of public cloud-like agility and productivity with the low cost and control of an on-premises environment.
