The global pandemic accelerated digital transformation in nearly every industry. Almost overnight, workspaces and applications needed to be delivered to remote workers, and digital selling became commonplace for goods and services that previously required in-person meetings. These trends continue to accelerate into 2021, and organizations of all sizes are looking to accelerate IT operations with new technologies as quickly as possible to capitalize on these new patterns.
To achieve this acceleration and address the performance needs of mission-critical applications with existing IT staff, organizations are modernizing their infrastructure on-premises by advancing to Hyperconverged Infrastructure, or HCI. If you’re due to refresh your servers or storage, or have new application requirements, now is the time to seriously consider HCI.
HCI is a software-defined, unified system that combines all the elements of a traditional data center: storage, compute, networking and management onto industry-standard servers. HCI is the leading choice for infrastructure and application refreshes, and also new projects. Why? Customers running HCI solutions from VMware are experiencing:
- 259% return on Investment1
- 47% reduction in TCO2
- 72% lower operational costs due to reduced IT staff time and recovered productivity3
- 114% more new applications/major features per year vs. traditional infrastructure3
Modernizing your infrastructure with VMware HCI is easy, and VMware partners deliver complete offerings to execute your project from end-to-end. Whether you want a turnkey HCI solution, virtual desktops for your remote workforce, or the freedom to deploy HCI anywhere, VMware and our partners can help you efficiently execute your modernization initiative.
Organizations worldwide are modernizing with HCI as an evolution of compute virtualization and a core component of their multi-cloud strategy, spanning the datacenter, public cloud providers and edge sites.
