Why SimpliVity’s hyperconverged solutions are perfect for evolving business in the Philippines
Designed to work with any hypervisor or industry-standard x86 server platform, the SimpliVity solution provides a single, shared resource pool across the entire IT stack, eliminating point products and inefficient, siloed IT architectures. SimpliVity hyperconvergence, powered by its OmniStack technologies, is delivered through its SimpliVity OmniCube appliance, OmniStack with Cisco UCS, and OmniStack with Lenovo System x.
SimpliVity is distinguished from other converged infrastructure solutions by three unique attributes:
- Accelerated Data Efficiency: Inline data deduplication, compression, and optimization on all data at inception across all phases of the data lifecycle. On average, SimpliVity customers achieve 40:1 data efficiency while simultaneously increasing application performance.
- Built-In Data Protection: Provides data efficient backup and replication, and eliminates separate backup software, appliances, DR tools, and replication functions. SimpliVity’s inherent data efficiencies reduce backup and restore times from hours to minutes.
- Global Unified Management: A VM-centric approach to management that eliminates manually intensive, error prone administrative tasks. System administrators are no longer required to manage LUNs and volumes; instead,they can manage all resources and workloads centrally, using familiar interfaces such as VMware vCenter, and VMware vRealize Automation.
How is SimpliVity’s solution able to deliver 3x Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings?
SimpliVity massively simplifies IT infrastructure by combining so many components. Forrester’s Total Economic Impact Report on SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure explains how it works by examining a few customers use cases, as well as identifies and quantifies key benefits of investing in hyperconvergence. These benefits, on average, save enterprises up to 3x TCO by:
- Avoiding the cost of server and storage hardware infrastructure.
- Reducing the cost of professional services to optimize storage environment.
- Reducing the labor to manage daily backups.
- Avoiding the cost of data center floor space.
- Avoiding the cost of performing system updates
SimpliVity was founded in 2009. The founders started with a mission to “simplify IT.” It took 43 months of development in stealth mode to create the most comprehensive hyperconverged solution. SimpliVity’s innovation is not additive or complementary to in-place data center technology; it is revolutionary and disruptive. As a result, SimpliVity is well positioned to address the hyperconverged infrastructure market segment, one of the fastest growing in the $107B IT infrastructure market.
