Hyper-Converged Infrastructure, Virtualization, and Public Cloud Environments
With many applications moving to the cloud, HCI data centers and public cloud will have to co-exist for the foreseeable future. All these environments employ some form of virtualization, which has become less of a differentiator over time yet will still play an important role.
As a result, ease of operation, application services, and pay-as-you-go financial models have grown into key ways for IT to discriminate between HCI or cloud offerings to host applications. To flourish in the data centers of the future, HCI will need to adopt many of these same paradigms present in public clouds today.
Join this webinar to discover:
- Why the data center of the future will need to co-exist with cloud environments for a long time to come.
- The role virtualization plays and how ease of use has become more critical as a means to discriminate between HCI and cloud solutions to host IT applications.
- Why HCI solutions will need to become much more API/DevOps/automation driven.
The future of IT is clear, it’s becoming a data center-public or hybrid-cloud world. In order to succeed in this new environment, IT managers must move from a focus on virtualization and hypervisors to ease of use as a key selection criterion.
