Enabling IT Transformation with Hyper-Converged Infrastructure

Session Abstract

Today’s IT organizations are continuously challenged to deliver more for the business while budgets are flat, at best. IT is looking for ways to increase productivity and reducing overall cost. Good news is the industry has delivered on a number of game-changing technologies to enable IT professionals to elevate from costly traditional infrastructure to the cost-effective modern datacenter. In the midst of this transformation is the Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI). Powered by software-defined approach, HCI is the convergence of physical storage onto industry-standard x86 servers, enabling a building block approach with scale-out capabilities.
