When it comes to evolving the IT infrastructure towards a model that will save money, simplify operations, and increase agility, VMware leads the way. Built on VMware vSphere® the industry-leading virtualisation platform, HCI software powered by VMware vSAN™ delivers everything needed to implement enterprise-class hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) software.
HCI software allows the convergence of compute, networking, and storage onto industry-standard x86 servers, enabling a building-block approach with scale-out capabilities. In a hyper-converged infrastructure software, all key data centre functions run as software on the hypervisor in a tightly integrated software layer.
A core building block for the modern data centre, vSAN extends the benefits of VMware vSphere® beyond compute and powers industry-leading hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solution.
With vSAN, the organisation benefits from the ability too:
It's cost effective too, HCI software powered by vSAN eliminates the need to buy purpose-built hardware, reduces human error through automation, and leverages existing resources to deliver big savings of up. Some organisations report total cost of ownership reductions of up to 50% versus modern storage arrays. As you only pay for what you need. The solution is tailored so over provisioning is no longer required.
Deploying the right hyper-converged infrastructure solution will ensure that your data centre can handle any application with confidence, including high-performing business-critical apps, virtual desktop infrastructure, private clouds, remote IT, and container-based applications for cloud-native environments, without any gaps in performance as usage grows. Deployment options are fully flexible with:
