Traditional IT infrastructure is comprised of a multi-layered stack of technologies that need to be
integrated carefully and are typically managed by teams of engineers who specialize in one piece of
the overall puzzle. This architecture, typically centered around monolithic storage arrays, has worked well for traditional business applications, but has led to increasingly siloed organizations, long project timelines, and ballooning budgets.
The world’s largest tech companies paved the way for our new software-driven world by creating
products that have permeated our lives and by developing technologies that have made this possible. And by necessity these tech giants realized earlier than the business community at large that a new approach was needed to support rapidly growing and continuously changing computing needs. This is what led to the development of distributed systems technologies that have become the foundation for public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and that enable modern hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). Building your IT data center on HCI enables your business to benefit from this modern architecture without outsourcing your infrastructure to the cloud.
