Next Generation Networks Need to be More than Fast

The data center network is on the verge of one of its most dramatic upgrades in bandwidth in decades. Virtualized data centers, as well as hyperscale and rack scale environments, are driving the need for higher bandwidth networks. These environments

The Storage Problems That HCI Creates

Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCI), as they scale, start to experience several storage challenges. HCI deals with any scaling requirement with a single move, adding a node. This additional node comes with CPU and Memory to meet the compute demand, flash storage

What is Software Defined Networking?

Like other software defined initiatives, software defined networking (SDN) abstracts the networking operating environment from the hardware switches and controller. The SDN promise is to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency by managing a set of physical top of rack

Hyperconvergence is NOT Backup

One of the riskiest claims a vendor ever makes is “we’ve eliminated the need for backup” and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors make this claim frequently. Good data resiliency is not good backup, and in fact, some of the work that

SlideShare: How Software-Defined Networking Can Simplify Scale-Out HCI

Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCI) offer management simplicity and provisioning agility to data centers undergoing digital transformation. When applications need more compute or storage resources, IT can “simply add a node” to an existing HCI cluster. But as the HCI environment scales
