A well-chosen hyper-converged infrastructure offers several benefits, including increased efficiency and easier management.
This means choosing the right technology. Analysts IDC have warned that it will ‘mature into a market with only a few dominant vendors’, software longevity is an important consideration.
It also means sizing it correctly, achieving best practice implementation and quite probably integrating it with the cloud.
As a partner of Nutanix, Dell-EMC, HPE and Lenovo, Total is well place to advise you on the relative merits of Dell EMC VxRail, HPE SimpliVity and each vendors Nutanix-based solution.
We can also provide you with the design expertise to create a resilient hybrid environment, by integrating your hyper-converged infrastructure with the cloud.
Total can help you size it correctly: deploying a discovery tool to analyse your infrastructure and workloads and interpreting the findings. As well as providing the technical expertise for best practice installation, configuration, migration, testing and documentation.
"The hyper-converged solution has got an almost self-healing aspect to it. There’s an intelligent software layer that enables us to reduce our IT overhead in terms of maintaining the hardware and we use less than 10% of the power that the old equipment used."
