A guide to getting started with hyperconverged infrastructure

02 Oct 17

CIOs and IT departments are coming under increasing pressure as they search for infrastructure that suits an enterprise’s current needs, but will also be able to cater for its future needs.

IT infrastructure needs to have performance availability, scalability and manageability to be efficient in the short term, but also keep down long-term operating expenditures.

As such, IT teams are now launching initiatives such as evolving the data centre to hyperconvergence for virtualisation and cloud; delivering private cloud and infrastructure as a service (IaaS); delivering any application, at any scale; and improving IT operational efficiency.

These initiatives are aimed at taking the risk and the cost out of deploying new IT systems.

Lenovo’s HX series powered by Nutanix software is a fully integrated, turnkey solution that eliminates complicated IT integration and setup, solving these challenges for growing or large organisations.

Their 38-page e-book, The Definitive Guide to Enterprise Applications on Hyperconverged Infrastructure, gives an in-depth explanation on how it’s able to do this, answering questions like:

  • What infrastructure requirements are needed by enterprise applications?
  • What applications should be migrated to the cloud?
  • How can you make storage and virtualisation invisible for your organisation?

Lenovo HX series powered by Nutanix brings cloud-like simplicity, agility, and scale in its approach to the enterprise data centre.
