Can HCI Deliver? - Can HCI overcome the challenges mid-sized data centers face? Discover how an ultraconverged infrastructure solution can address HCI's limitations, reduce costs, and simplify IT operations.
VMware Storage Challenges - VMware storage challenges are the limiting factor in how thoroughly organizations adopt it. Learn what they are and how to fix them.
The Problems Using Array-Based Replication for VMware DR - Array-based replication may seem ideal for IT professionals looking to improve their disaster recovery (DR) strategy. It sends an off-host copy of data to a remote site without installing special software in the hypervisor. However, array-based replication is expensive and
Minimize VMware TCO Triggers - When looking for a VMware alternative, you need to move beyond low prices and look for a solution to minimize VMware TCO triggers. VMware Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) triggers are challenges or needs that come up during the use
How to Extend the Life of IT Infrastructure - As budgets continue to tighten, IT leaders are trying to figure out how to extend the life of IT infrastructure so they can reduce spending. At the same time, you must keep up with demands for improving performance and meeting
What is Global Inline Deduplication? - If you are deploying a private cloud that spans multiple data centers or hundreds of Edge locations, understanding the various forms of deduplication is critical to selecting the infrastructure for these initiatives. Understanding what you will get from each vendor’s
The Three Requirements for Edge Computing - Before selecting a platform, IT planners need to understand the three requirements for Edge Computing. While some requirements are similar to any other computing center, Edge Computing has attributes that make some nice-to-have capabilities a “must-have” feature. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI)
The HCI Resource Efficiency Problem - As IT attempts to scale Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), they realize the impact of the HCI resource efficiency problem. The selling point of HCI solutions is that they scale by “just adding a node.” Each node brings a fixed amount of
Scale-Out HCI is not Enough - Scale-out is the primary focus of most hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI), but scale-out HCI is not enough to deliver a more cost-effective and easier-to-operate data center. HCI vendors claim to offer scale-out by adding nodes to increase computing power, networking bandwidth,
What Are Immutable Backups - Backup software vendors insist on making backup data immutable, so IT professionals are now asking what are immutable backups. Securing backup data is critical since bad actors know the organization will count on their backups to recover encrypted files and
