With the benefits quickly stacking up, it’s easy to understand why Gartner stated HCI (Hyper-Converged Infrastructure) as one of the hottest trends in data centre infrastructure.
HCI is intended to reduce infrastructure complexity and cost, whilst enhancing scalability, agility and operational efficiency. This consolidated infrastructure enables organizations to leverage the software layer by using low cost commodity hardware, while reducing concerns around vendor lock-in, to form a seamless software- defined IT infrastructure environment well suited to today’s IT challenges.
Simple to use and manage, without specialists and more cost-effective than most traditional solutions, it’s easy to understand why more organisations are making the move from traditional architecture to Hyper-Converged Infrastructure.

Few companies can afford operational disruption, yet IT budgets remain flat and can’t encompass the growing need for additional
resiliency measures to protect critical-business applications. The recovery-as-a-service offering from VMware, VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery, helps you fulfill the need to implement or supplement your organization’s continuity plans while addressing

The need for robust network security is growing, but IT security teams, resources, and budgets are shrinking at many organizations. That doesn’t mean you have to scale down your growth or skimp on key IT security areas, but it does mean you need to optimize your resources, starting with your network firewall team. Resource optimization involves the automation and streamlining of operational processes and management workflows so that your IT team members can be freed up to focus their time, skills, and expertise on priority projects. Furthermore, optimizing your resources helps preserve your budget while eliminating budgetary conflicts and slashing administrative costs.

For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.
