Converged Infrastructure

Why Converged Infrastructure?

Contact Axis Business SolutionsIn the post-virtualization data center, we have misalignment between legacy IT stacks and the needs of virtual workloads. Since siloed physical storage and network assets lack the optimization to support your virtual servers, you over provision resources. As you virtualize more and more workloads, and the data associated with your workloads grows, your environment cannot keep pace. Throwing more hardware at the problem only adds more complexity and cost, and doesn’t address the real problem.
 

Converged Infrastructure Creates Efficiency

You want to gain a competitive edge. That’s what cloud service providers like Amazon set out to do when they built out Amazon Web Services. Their edge? They had to crack the code on utility computing to deliver greater efficiency. To achieve it, Amazon Web Services leveraged virtualization and distributed computing using commodity components. This new approach to infrastructure and computing allowed them to develop economies of scale and set lower prices. If you’re running applications on virtualized infrastructure, you’ve likely considered using third-party cloud services versus refreshing your own hardware to improve efficiency and reduce costs. So, which is the right approach? Should you leverage public cloud computing? Or should you build a private cloud-computing environment that delivers the capabilities of large cloud service providers within your own IT environment? Converged Infrastructure helps with the latter. It combines data center components into an appliance form factor, and adds centralized management and the ability to easily scale – it eliminates compatibility issues typical in a legacy, siloed environment. Furthermore, it streamlines purchasing, deployment and use with converged infrastructure. Emulating the architecture, processes and practices of the top cloud service providers starts with converged infrastructure. You can reduce complexity, cycle time and costs. That allows you to change the economics of in-house IT service delivery.

Data Center Consolidation with SimplIVity at Axis Business Soltuions

SimpliVity Converged Infrastructure

SimpliVity is a leader in converged infrastructure for the software-defined data center. Its unique data architecture contributes to a 300% reduction in total cost of ownership. SimpliVity’s Data Virtualization Platform introduces performance and capacity efficiency by eliminating unnecessary IO and redundancy. It deduplicates, compresses and optimizes data at inception, and keeps it in that state for its lifecycle. Integrated data protection eliminates the need for complex and costly add-on backup software and hardware. You can back up locally or store backups at a remote site. SimpliVity offers unified global management across multi-node and multi-site converged infrastructure federations, via a vCenter interface. SimpliVity takes a VM-centric point of view and tracks what data belongs to which virtual machine. This enables greater virtual machine mobility.
