Why IT needs hyperconvergence
Want to know why hyperconverged systems are making such a huge splash in the market?
CIO.com columnist Rob Enderle explained it pretty well in a March article titled All hyper-converged solutions are not created equal. It takes some effort, he says, to “weed out the providers who are long on marketing and sales promises, but short on having a competitive solution” (and amen to that!) But it’s worth it, Enderle adds, because “firms that have successfully deployed hyper-converged solutions rave about them and it is almost like a religious rebirth. The speed of deployment, reliability and sheer lack of aggravation is massively different in a hyperconverged shop, and, though you wouldn’t expect it, the agility is actually amazingly pronounced, allowing these shops to better compete with offerings from some of the larger cloud providers.”
Well, I don’t know that I’d use a phrase like “religious rebirth,” but Enderle’s got a point. There’s tremendous enthusiasm for hyperconvergence among adopters of the technology, and the number of organizations that are looking into it for their next data center refresh is growing fast.
More reasons why hyperconvergence is hot
Actually there are lots of other reasons, beyond the ones Enderle mentions, why hyperconvergence is getting so much attention. The right hyperconverged solution can help you improve operational efficiency by eliminating data islands and reducing overprovisioning. It can reduce the cost of disaster recovery. And by simplifying management tasks, it can free up staff for innovation.
