Geographic Diversity and Disaster Recovery Also on the economics front, the value of resiliency and disaster recovery cannot be overstated. One of the benefits of the cloud is the geographic diversity that can be achieved to protect against natural disasters. With a hyperconverged infrastructure solution that has resiliency and data replication as a part of the core offering, multisite redundancy capability is baked in as part of the solution. For those that have opted to build hybrid clouds, some hyperconverged infrastructure solutions can leverage that public cloud deployment as a replication target. In other words, rather than going to the expense of building out a second physical site, the public cloud can be used to achieve data protection goals. Hyperconvergence and the Private Cloud Building a traditional private cloud can be hard work. It takes a lot of effort to get all of the pieces aligned. Hyperconverged infrastructure makes it possible to deploy private clouds in a fraction of the time it would normally take. Everything is built into the individual appliances, including centralized management, data efficiency, replication, and the ability to scale in incremental units. These are core needs in build- ing an agile private cloud environment. Next Steps You've now completed your introductory journey into the technical world of hyperconverged infrastructure. To learn more about hyper- converged infrastructure, look for The Gorilla Guide to Hyperconverged Infrastructure Implementation Strategies where you'll learn about key uses cases and how hypercovergence is affecting the role of the IT pro.
