Organizations are in the midst of a digital transformation unlike anything we’ve seen before. End-users expect IT to support the real-time needs of the business, but challenges stand in the way. Legacy infrastructure, disparate management silos, and inefficient resource utilization are leading to numerous delays across the data lifecycle that negatively impact the business.
HCI provides organizations with a complete foundational platform to support the current and future needs of the business on standardized, x86 servers that improves IT operational efficiency. While organizations often start their journeys by leveraging HCI to support tier-2 applications, such as VDI or office collaboration software, as they gain confidence in the technology to support their application requirements, they’re increasingly using HCI to support business-critical applications. These applications range from relational databases and data warehouses to container management platforms.
