HCI provides the ideal way to transition away from a legacy data center. With HCI, companies can update and simplify their data center infrastructure by provisioning state-of-the-art storage, compute, and networking all in a single chassis.
Adopting HCI empowers companies to break down silos by converging all the elements of a data center in a single package. HCI integrates your infrastructure by using software to distribute functions across the entire cluster of nodes. Each node is predesigned and pretested, reducing the risks associated with transitioning your data center.
HCI increases the operational efficiency of the data center. Management is handled using a single pane of glass for centralized administration and optimum visibility. Compute, storage, networking, and virtualization can all be controlled by the same management plane.
HCI makes it easy to scale so the data center can grow with your business. Each node is like a building block. As capacity needs increase, your business can provision additional preconfigured blocks of resources. When you acquire new storage, you also gain additional networking and compute resources to support it. Organizations that use HCI enjoy superior reliability and performance as well as lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
