True Hyperconveragence

SimpliVity is a company founded on the belief that today’s modern data centers need to be greatly simplified. SimpliVity OmniStack enables hyperconverged infrastructure, seamlessly combining all of the functionality “below the hypervisor” in an all-in-one form factor.

True hyperconvergence is IT infrastructure designed, delivered and supported by a single vendor. It has a software-centric design and provides a single pool of shared x86 resources that scales by adding additional building block units. Through a single management interface, you can easily manage aggregate resources and virtual machines within and across data centers. Hyper-efficiency characterizes true hyperconvergence: resources are used without waste and without introducing contention.

 

That means that data management tasks are not duplicated and heavy processing is offloaded from x86 processors so that your applications aren’t compromised. Efficiency extends to the data, with all data being deduplicated, compressed and optimized once—before it’s written to disk—and remaining in that state throughout its lifecycle.

True hyperconvergence simplifies deployment of infrastructure and virtual workloads, and simplifies management when compared with legacy IT stacks. Today’s data centers contain generations of legacy infrastructure silos that, combined, deliver IT services. Managing legacy siloed infrastructure (storage, compute, networking, hypervisor) across multiple sites, however, challenges IT organizations. The added complexity from day-to-day operations (application performance, data protection and disaster recovery, planning, and data growth) complicates the task. You may be grappling with:

  • Complexity. Has your data center evolved into silos of functional infrastructure requiring component-level management from multiple interfaces?

  • Data growth. As data growth explodes, can you continue to operate the same way you always have?

  • Legacy equipment. Do your legacy systems work optimally with your virtualized environment?

  • Application performance. Do you have greater demands for throughput performance now that you’ve virtualized business-critical applications?

  • Time overhead. How much time are you spending on maintenance, upgrades, deployments, provisioning and management tasks instead of building more valuable innovation for your business?

  • Business continuity risk. Are you challenged to complete backups within your prescribed window? Does your present mode of data protection’s RTOs and RPOs leave you vulnerable?

  • Global mobility and management of VMs. Are your virtualized applications’ mobility constrained by the physical storage it is associated with? Do you have too many interfaces for managing global resources and workloads?

  • Staff skills. Do you and your team have the necessary expertise to manage infrastructure silo products separately?

  • Budget constraints. With the lion’s share of budget devoted to “keeping the lights on,” are you finding it difficult to fund innovation?

  • Service level agreements. Are you struggling to meet your Service Level Agreements (SLA) to the business?

  • Efficiency. Are you working most efficiently? Are your systems efficient?

  • Innovation. Is there a better way?

     

A snapshot of today’s IT environment reveals complexity, cost, and inflexibility that inhibits IT staff from effectively supporting the business. Deploying legacy products, dealing with many points of management, and trying to manually optimize resources introduces challenges and higher costs. These “islands” become limited in functionality, as well as strand resources, resulting in poor utilization, idle resources, and high labor costs. Further, none of these legacy “solutions” solve your performance, capacity and mobility issues without driving up OPEX or CAPEX.
