Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s HCI 2.0 | Helping Power Your business into the Future
We live in a time of tremendous change in which the way we do things, the way businesses operate and the way we communicate is continuously evolving. Because of this, a flexible IT system, designed to deal with the transforming landscape is essential in what is increasingly becoming a digital world.
In many cases businesses have had to accelerate their digital transformation journeys and ensure constant innovation to keep up with the opportunities available to them and to stay relevant as their customers, employees and competitors turn to technology.
One of the key innovations increasingly being adopted by companies to assist with their business transformation is hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). Many businesses have implemented HCI as it simplifies the remote management of virtual desktops, apps, and data. Following on from our recent blog; What is Hyperconvergence?, in this article, we look at HPE’s HCI 2.0 solution and how it can provide organisations with the tools to accelerate innovation and time to market by driving resilience, agility, and workload consolidation.
The evolution of HCI
While HCI is well suited to virtual desktops and lower-tier workloads, historically it has lacked power and efficiencies to support mission-critical applications. This often results in businesses trying to balance performance, availability, and cost.
HCI has evolved to enable enterprises to maximise their investments and ensure that no resources are wasted. HPE HCI 2.0 brings together the best of HCI and converged architectures to meet the growing needs of today’s businesses and is emerging as a central element for data centres globally. HPE HCI 2.0 is an ideal option for virtualised desktops, mission-critical workloads, remote or branch office (ROBO) services and scale out storage.
By offering full flexibility, unrivalled scalability and optimised performance, HPE HCI supports IT development and business growth through capable and reliable technology designed to meet your business needs.
Why HPE HCI 2.0?
HPE HCI 2.0 powers innovation and superior resourcing, reduces waste and, by disaggregating storage and compute, HPE has enabled flexibility, reliability, and efficiency. Based on HPE Nimble Storage, HPE ProLiant and HPE InfoSight, HCI 2.0 is the next generation of intelligent IT architecture, utilising the power of AI to provide robust reliability and security.
With HPE HCI 2.0, enterprises can achieve greater efficiencies through seamless and reliable IT processes, enabling them to increase business value and focus on innovation that will propel them to the future.
The benefits of HP HCI 2.0
Significantly reduces downtime because it ensures that there are no bottlenecks in network traffic and no lags in performance.
More demanding apps and mixed workloads can be consolidated, delivering better outcomes.
Achieves a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by scaling compute and storage independently.
Enables disaggregated scaling, which means efficiency with no more costly overprovisioning for organisations.
Disaggregated HCI also means that enterprises no longer need to add unnecessary hardware to achieve resilience as it fully utilises the resources they already have.
Guarantees 99.9999% uptime ensuring Tier 1 workloads run seamlessly.
Its AI-powered intelligent monitoring helps enterprise data centres to run faster and more reliably, predicting issues and fixing them before they become problems.
