VMWARE vSAN - VMware HCI supports the most hybrid cloud use cases
VMware-powered HCI offers organisations a natural next step to the Digital Foundation by quickly building and integrating cloud infrastructure. IT teams experience simplified operations that increase business agility through consistent infrastructure, processes and tools from edge to core to cloud.
Policies and Hyper-Converged Infrastructures (HCI) help organisations evolve their datacentre without risk, control IT costs and scale to address tomorrow’s business needs. A software stack delivering flash-optimised, secure shared storage with the simplicity of a VMware vSphere®-native experience for all your critical virtualised workloads. Run on industry-standard x86 servers and components that help lower TCO by up to 50% versus traditional storage. It delivers the agility to easily scale IT with a comprehensive suite of software solutions.
VMware enables consumption of its product through multiple Cloud providers with VMware Cloud on AWS being fully operated, managed and supported as a Hybrid Cloud.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Hyper Converged Infrastructure evaluated vendors within four classes of integrated systems: integrated infrastructure systems (IIS), integrated stack systems (ISS), hyper converged integrated systems (HCIS) and integrated reference architectures (IRA), VMware vSan debuted as a market leader.
This report is validation of the growing significance of software to HCI and the critical role software is playing in powering the modern datacentre. The importance of software is further demonstrated by the fact that VMware vSAN powers HCI systems from 15 different server partners and in a number of different public cloud offerings allowing customers choice and flexibility in consuming hyper converged infrastructure.
As the market shifts towards software, VMware is focused on delivering the best HCI experience with the latest innovations to help IT teams become more agile and efficient - thanks to the broadest portfolio of software-defined technologies for the software-defined datacentre.
