CLOUD & VIRTUALIZATION
Server virtualization helps with business continuity and increased uptime; through services such as live migration, storage migration, fault tolerance, high availability, and distributed resource scheduling. Virtualization also provides high availability for critical applications and streamlines application deployment and migrations.
Modern data centers are fully virtualized, software defined and highly automated, providing consistent infrastructure and application delivery across a hybrid cloud environment. You can begin your virtual data center journey with server virtualization. The next steps involve adding storage and network virtualization, moving toward a fully virtualized software-defined data center architecture. This means virtualized compute, storage, networking, security and management all on one consistent foundation.
HYPER-CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE (HCI)
Combine common datacenter hardware using locally attached storage resources with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. Benefits include lower TCO, increased performance, and greater productivity within IT teams.
