The Challenge | Maintaining all of it
Building and maintaining a diverse set of hardware and software over time is challenging. From the initial discovery process, through the purchase and the final deployment of the solution. It takes time to select, order, receive, unbox, stand-up and configure the end solution. It is a daunting task for any organization big and small. Has your organization ever tracked how much time is consumed during this process from end-to-end?
And that doesn’t include the time your IT staff spends continuously monitoring the solution for updates and critical security patches, all of which is prone to human error or misconfiguration. Those misconfigurations are especially of concern when it comes to security, as 98% of breaches occur due to human error, leaving security gaps in the infrastructure.
The Solution | Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) with VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF)
Organizations that must build their own private clouds need to do so in a way that is simple to procure, easy to stand-up, automatically updates with the ability scale. Those organizations increasingly look to HCI solutions powered by VMware VCF. They also need private clouds that easily integrate with Public Clouds creating a flexible Hybrid cloud environment. HCI is a software-defined, unified platform that combines all the elements of a DIY datacenter made of storage, compute, networking and simplified management.
