A discussion on how VMware HCI addresses the requirements of the mid-market data center today and the coming needs of a hybrid, multi-cloud environment
Most mid-market organizations have virtualized their server environments, usually with VMware. The benefits of consolidating physical servers onto a pair of hosts are well known, as are the advantages of consolidating storage onto a network-attached array. But there are significant benefits to virtualizing storage in conjunction with virtualizing servers to create a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). This technology has been widely adopted and continues to grow as enterprises and mid-size companies address the current need to consolidate, moving applications from bare-metal servers to VMs and moving data from SAN-based arrays to an HCI cluster.
This paper will discuss how VMware’s HCI solution makes sense as an infrastructure that can better handle those current needs of mid-market companies, particularly when compared with traditional storage solutions, but can also provide a platform to support the changes these companies face, moving forward. To that end, VMware vSAN can lay the foundation in the corporate data center for IT to undergo a digital transformation and embrace a cloud-native, hybrid and multi-cloud environment.
