Traditional three-tier (compute, network, storage) architectures have served their purpose. In today’s modern data centers, is a storage area network (SAN) the best fit to support your virtualized workloads and cloud aspirations? With a traditional SAN, every few years you’re faced with the need to refresh not only your storage infrastructure, but other technologies as well. It’s a never-ending cycle of research, evaluation, vendor management, testing, deployment and migration. Maybe now is a good time to get off the merry-go-round.

In this webinar, Storage Switzerland’s George Crump and SimpliVity’s Adam Sekora compare and contrast the suitability of SANs vs. hyperconverged architectures; examine the benefits of consolidating and reducing the number of discrete IT devices in lieu of hyperconverged infrastructure; and discuss the merits of simplified IT and its impact on technology refresh initiatives. Join us to learn:

  • How the post-virtualization data center is impacting infrastructure and operations
  • How hyperconvergence simplifies IT and establishes a path to cloud computing
  • How a move away from a traditional three-tier architecture and toward hyperconverged infrastructure alleviates the pain points of never-ending cycles of technology refresh

Webinar registrants will receive a copy of Storage Switzerland’s latest educational white paper, “The Post-Virtualization Refresh – Is Hyperconvergence the Answer?”. The paper describes how data centers are reinventing themselves through virtualization. It examines the architectures best suited to support a cloud-like design, and helps IT professionals decide if a hyperconverged architecture is best to support the next-generation data center.

As is always the case with a Storage Switzerland webinar, we will leave plenty of time for questions. Ask our analyst or guest for suggestions regarding your post-virtualization storage challenges.
