Every business is looking for cost efficiency which is one of the biggest drivers of IT implementations and upgrades. The continuous and well-defined process of resource optimization brings value to the business with maximized profit and performance. The traditional infrastructure on which many organizations are working today needs to change their way to get more performance from the type of infrastructure they possess. Demand for on-premises data center is shrinking as many companies are moving towards cloud. In traditional architecture, the server installed on-premises gives anyone access to hardware a view into stored data and applications. Companies need to purchase separate additional hardware when scaling up and upgrades take place which becomes very costly.
How to choose the right infrastructure for your workloads?
Let us start with the traditional data center infrastructure which has been built on hardware dedicated for specific workloads only. For example, server used for computing purposes not for storage. Each component in traditional infrastructure works independently having its separate management.
Deployment, Operations, and Management of these infrastructure and slower delivery of IT services and applications along with kind of environments which is expensive and difficult to scale gives enough reason to replace it.
Pros and Cons of Traditional Data Centre
Traditional infrastructure has interlinked components but needs to be configured separately. It is useful in those organizations that have huge deployments and runs multiple applications with large amount of data having large number of users.
In traditional architecture, the server is installed on-premises and gives the users access to hardware having stored data and applications in it. Companies need to purchase separate additional hardware when scaling up and upgrades take place which becomes very costly.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI)
HCI bundles the compute, server, storage, and virtualization tools and management software on a single chassis. HCI took the convergence to a next level by virtualizing all the hardware elements using a software-defined infrastructure that includes virtualized compute, network, and storage resources.
Traditional Infrastructure cannot match up with high-density. IO-intensive workloads of VDI. During the peak activity periods, the pool storage units struggle with the random IO requests from thousands of virtual desktops. Latency seriously affects the end-user performance causing decreased productivity driving down the ROI of the whole solution.
HCI consolidates VDI, databases, and multiple workloads into a single platform. Automates various processes within these workloads, allocates and re-allocates compute and storage capacity to them by centrally managing the whole systems. HCI uses containers by abstracting the OS and running application modules using same physical resources.
