Top 3 reasons to invest in a hyper-converged practice

In the not-so-distant past, the concept of hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI) did not exist. Fast forward to 2018 and hyper-convergence is now the market’s fastest growing element among all data center technologies. HCI has arrived and it is here to stay.

With next-generation software and hardware advancements, HCI technology is exceeding consumer expectations. We are in an age of hyper-educated buyers where the line-of-business conversations are evolving from discussions of technology needs to the needs of the business. If you have resisted investing in an HCI practice, here are three reasons to stop and move forward with embracing a hyper-converged infrastructure:

  1. Projected Market Growth: According to the IDCs report, The Business Value of Modernizing Infrastructure with Hyper-Converged Systemsby 2021 hyper-converged technology is projected to be a $7.6 billion. Each year more and more organizations are looking to solutions that deliver the agility, scalability, and pay-as-you-grow economics of the cloud.
  2. Organizations Adopting Multi-Cloud Strategies: In another report issued by the IDC earlier this year, by early 2019, 94 percent of organizations plan to be using a combination of public, private, and hybrid clouds. More than ever, organizations are exploring the benefits of a multi-cloud strategy. Fundamental to that approach is having the technology that provides the benefits of both private and public cloud environments. HCI is the ideal infrastructure to support a multi-cloud world bringing the simplicity and security to a complex environment.
  3. Business-Critical Applications Migrating to HCI Platform: Gartner reports that by 2020, 20 percent of business-critical applications currently on three-tier infrastructures are expected to transition to HCIBusiness application needs are driving the adoption of next-generation technologies, like HCI, that are purpose-built to meet the growing workloads of the business.
