Forward-thinking IT leaders know that they need to modernise infrastructure to enable future innovation and maximise results. A transformed IT infrastructure allows your business to seamlessly invest in the new digital products and services it needs to grow and compete in today’s digital landscape.

Like cloud, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is a core element of IT Transformation. It reduces data centre complexity, increases scalability, and greatly simplifies management.

The beauty of HCI is that it brings computing, storage, networking and virtualisation into a single footprint, modernising your data centre, and setting your business up for success.

Benefits of hyper-converged infrastructure:

  • It’s easier to set up (one box vs multiple boxes)
  • It reduces administrative burden
  • It’s cost effective to maintain
  • It simplifies the data centre
  • It supports a ‘scale-out’ architecture

The results speak for themselves

According the IDC, the simplification offered by HCI delivers an average 6 times ROI over five years, reducing operating costs by almost 60%.
