Why Data Centre Hyperconvergence is Key to Your Cloud Strategy

Cloud is becoming a key plank in virtually every organisation’s technology strategy. The potential benefits of cloud are now widely understood, among them the ability to save money and reduce IT management overheads, meaning more resources can be ploughed into other parts of your business.

But moving to cloud won’t necessarily deliver these benefits if it’s done in isolation: organisations also need to look at their data centre operations and streamline how these are run.

The need to rationalise your data centre as you move to cloud

It’s unlikely any business will move all its systems to the cloud – certainly not in the short term. This means maintaining a physical data centre footprint for systems that haven’t yet moved to the cloud, or that must remain on-premises, perhaps for regulatory reasons.

However, as you migrate to the cloud, it’s important for you to slim down this data centre presence. Imagine, for example, that you migrate your CRM system to the cloud, but the server in your data centre that it was using is still required for another business application, so can’t be retired. This means that rather than saving money, you’ll have more infrastructure to pay for, manage and maintain – not to mention the fact you’ve now got the opportunity cost of a server sitting there massively under-utilised, because you can’t (easily) use it for anything else.
