VxRail allows FUJIFILM to build for scale and quick deployments that are predictable and repeatable to ensure the availability of critical systems within the healthcare enterprise.
The old model of IT involved deploying more of everything just to keep up with demands. However, IT departments that are able to deliver solutions for business needs and support business goals have moved beyond managing siloed systems. Adopting a more efficient model of IT service and systems is the key to freeing IT to improve business operations.
Reaching that level of efficiency through “do-it-yourself” efforts requires an immense amount of time and expense up front. What if someone has already pre-engineered, pre-tested, and optimized a perfect solution for your IT needs?
See the difference a converged system can make.

One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs.
Integrated Computing (IC), also known as Converged Infrastructure, stands to revolutionize everything about IT. IC takes all of virtualization, storage, networking, and compute into a single system and allows total infrastructure oversight through one console. As you can imagine, the improvements in ease of use, agility, and efficiency are quite substantial.
This is essential because infrastructure maintenance devours about three-fourths of annual IT budgets. IC changes all of that, delivering high efficiency solutions for the lifecycle of system,reducing costs and freeing up valuable personnel.
The evolution of IT awaits.
The company’s recently unveiled HCI platform leverages SolidFire’s all-flash scale-out architecture and performance management capabilities to support enterprise environments. Will it help NetApp make up ground against its fast-growing rivals?
Gartner Report: Competitive Landscape for Hyperconverged Integrated Systems. Accelerate business outcomes and achieve growth with hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS). Key findings: As the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market has matured in the past two years, some smaller providers without sufficient bases, technical resources and cash to survive on their own have exited the market." • "HCIS-only providers that have a sustainable sales advantage based on effective communication of technical strengths that can deliver superior cost savings or performance advantages are most likely to remain viable as the market continues to grow." • "HCIS providers without compelling value propositions to differentiate their offerings against other HCIS solutions are unlikely to survive the increasing competitive pressure that is appearing in the market."
This Gartner Report on an effective hyperconvergence strategy includes their research findings and recommendations. It also includes a deep dive analysis of key determinants in a hyperconverged solution decision.
This Hyper Converged Infrastructure solution brief describes the key benefits of NetApp's next generation HCI solution including enterprise scale, efficient storage architecture, trustworthy data services, and IT operations transformation.
Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.

Endlessly scale as your infrastructure needs grow
VMware vSAN is enterprise-class, vSphere-native storage that powers more hyper-converged infrastructure solutions than any other vendor. vSAN accelerates and simplifies the data center modernization journey by helping you evolve your infrastructure without risk, reduce TCO through simplified operations and server economics, and scale to tomorrow’s business needs with an agile, cloud-ready platform. As the only vSphere-native storage platform, vSAN naturally extends virtualization to storage, creating a hyperconverged solution that simply works with existing tools, skill sets, software solutions, and server platforms. The result is an agile IT environment ready for dynamic business needs.
As infrastructure managers confront urgent demands for data center agility and cost savings, the benefits of Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) become all the more compelling. HCI enables lower cost IT operations and greater flexibility by combining compute, storage and management in a single software-defined solution on commodity hardware. This paper offers guidance on selecting an HCI solution. It is based on IT Central Station member reviews of VMware vSAN, a foundational component of VMware HCI.
This IDC White Paper offers an overview of the new datacenter infrastructure trends that are being driven by a need to solve traditional datacenter challenges that still exist today. This paper also offers insight into a recent IDC survey of different customers running VMware vSAN, a software-defined, hyperconverged solution. The survey was conducted during the second half of 2017 to understand the real-world value VMware vSAN provides when deployed within production environments.
The right hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solution can yield tangible financial benefits for an IT organization. This paper explores how HCI powered by VMware vSAN improves an IT department’s financial outlook in terms of both Capital Expense (CapEx) and Operating Expense (OpEx). Its insights are based on comments from real users on IT Central Station.
