  • Hyper-convergence market buyer's guide

    The hyper-convergence market initially consisted of virtual desktops and remote offices, but has moved into data centers.

    Hyper-converged infrastructure products can be self-contained appliances with the software integrated, or they can be a software-only offering that runs on any commodity hardware. Customers can install it on their own hardware, buy Ready Nodes from hardware partners or as integrated EVO:RAIL appliances sold by hardware vendors.

    Because hyper-converged systems include hypervisors along with storage and servers, these systems are best for heavily virtualized environments. That is why virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is a popular use case. Hyper-convergence's "infrastructure-in-a-box" approach also fits well for remote offices because it saves having to buy separate products. SMBs and departments in large companies also find hyper-converged appliances a fast and easy way to install enough infrastructures to serve as primary storage for certain applications.

  • What's to gain by adopting all-flash arrays?

    All-flash arrays increase the number of VMs allowed per physical host. This affects the configuration, performance and even spending decisions in a virtualized data center. Powerful all-flash arrays compress data at impressive levels. As a result, admins who put flash into action in a data center can improve storage performance and at the same time increase the number of VMs per physical host.

    This has effects on server selection, VM configuration and overall performance of an IT infrastructure. While there'll be reasonable concerns about the purchase costs, there are factors that can make calculating the ROI for an all-flash array less daunting. This three-part guide explores these issues and considers why an organization might consider adopting all-flash arrays.

  • Becoming familiar with VM-aware storage

    As with any product still in its infancy, an exact definition for virtual machine-aware storage can be difficult to nail down. In simple terms, VM-aware storage is an appliance that vendors build specifically with virtual machines in mind in order to cut back on some of the most pertinent issues in virtual environments: complexity, difficult management and lagging performance.

    Using VM-aware storage typically means there's no need to configure logical unit numbers and volumes, and because VMs are directly associated with the storage they reside on, priority can be given to more demanding apps and VMs can be granularly managed. This guide will walk you through what products classify as VM-aware storage, how they are implemented in virtual environments and what benefits they can bring to storage and virtualization administrators so you can make an informed decision about whether they're the right choice.
