Scale how and when you want with Net App HCI
The main questions you will ask yourself are what sets this solution apart from the rest, and what benefits will it have to my business for the next number of years? Well NetApp HCI (Hyper-converged infrastructure) is something that your business should be paying attention to with all the compute and storage built into a compact 2u unit. Following their purchase of SolidFire back in 2016, NetApp worked to release the “first enterprise-scale hyper converged infrastructure” with unique functions that no other vendor could offer.
NetApp wished to release a platform that could be configured and deployed within a matter of hours, as NetApp know that a major pain point that IT Managers face is time constraints. IT Managers no longer have to spend weeks, maybe even months supplying their components for their data centre, NetApp supplies a tried and tested solution to alleviate the workload that IT departments would have to work with in the past.
Going back to NetApp’s purchase of SolidFire back in 2016, SolidFire had the idea to allow businesses to scale independently, and NetApp follows up on this belief. NetApp HCI is the first in the HCI market to allow your business to scale on your terms. There will be no over-provisioning with NetApp HCI, you will scale only what you need, when you need it. I know what you are probably asking yourself, how will I be able to manage this? Well NetApp has worked alongside VMware to include the vCentre plugin to allow you to manage your storage and clusters through a single pane of glass.
It is clear to see that NetApp HCI in paving the way for the future, with unique benefits that other vendors cannot meet. No longer will your business worry about paying more than what they have to with NetApp’s independent scaling.
