Most IT organizations have come to realize, or soon will, that the glory days of the legacy stack are behind us. Thanks to hyperconverged infrastructure solutions like SimpliVity, the end has come for siloed infrastructures made up of disparate purpose-built appliances from various vendors for data efficiency, data protection, disaster recovery, WAN optimization, and so on. It’s about time the professionals of the IT world got some relief from the everlasting data problem and the resulting IO Gap, appliance sprawl, siloed infrastructure, complex management, lost time, and multiplying cost of it all. Good riddance.
So what are the benefits of hyperconvergence that make it such a lasting and strategic adoption of technology by CIOs and IT business leaders alike? In our upcoming webinar, SimpliVity and Lenovo will discuss how we deliver several values to the IT organization and the business as a result of their hyperconverged offering – OmniStack Solution with Lenovo System x3650 M5.
SimpliVity and Lenovo’s hyperconverged solution consolidates all IT infrastructure and services below the hypervisor into a highly scalable and efficient 2U building-block of x86 resources, running on Lenovo System x servers. By consolidating 8 to 12 disparate legacy solutions including hypervisor, compute, storage, inline deduplication, backup, and WAN optimization, operational efficiency is significantly improved. Rather than managing four or more screens and interfaces, SimpliVity and Lenovo allow administrators to choose and leverage interfaces that you are already familiar with, like VMware vCenter and xClarity, to manage your entire global federation from one screen.
Moreover, SimpliVity and Lenovo not only bring operational efficiency into your data center, but data efficiency as well. SimpliVity’s OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform deduplicates, compresses, and optimizes all data at inception across all phases of the data lifecycle, globally. As a result, customers achieve an average 40:1 data efficiency ratio while improving performance for mission critical applications. SimpliVity’s OmniStack software running on Lenovo System x 3650 M5 is an ultra-efficient hyperconverged offering as Lenovo System x3650 M5 servers support up to a 131% performance boost (for java workloads) over the previous generation.
Even the trendiest technologies can’t survive without happy customers and users. Both Lenovo and SimpliVity have outstanding customer satisfaction programs. In fact, Lenovo is rated #1 in customer satisfaction in the server industry. Likewise, SimpliVity has industry-leading, enterprise-class customer support with a customer satisfaction rating of 9.6 out of 10. That’s something your entire IT organization can get onboard with.
According to a TechValidate survey, 75% of respondents used five or more vendors/product interfaces prior to deploying SimpliVity. With that in mind, was the entirety of your legacy stack in your data center ever backed by a guarantee? You’re probably thinking “how could an infrastructure stack with five or more vendors have any type of meaningful guarantee behind it?” The OmniStack Solution with Lenovo System x comes with SimpliVity’s five-pronged HyperGuarantee for efficiency, protection, simplicity, manageability, and availability.
