Think back to when cell phones were the top item on everyone’s wish list. Up until a few years ago, portable phones were a luxury that simplified lives. No need to have office phones, pay phones, or even beepers. Everything was becoming easily accessible. At the same time, many other technologies were becoming smaller, simpler, and more efficient, such as MP3 players, digital cameras, laptops, email, and much more. But the pivotal moment wasn’t until the industry leader of MP3 players, Apple, transformed our devices once more and gave us the first smartphone, the iPhone.
That disruption to the status quo made a huge splash. Smartphones have changed our lives completely by combining all the products and applications we use on a regular basis, like cell phones, MP3s, cameras, and email, onto one device. The companies that provide the best all-in platform have ended up owning a category, like Apple. Now, the newest version of those smartphones are perennially on everyone’s wish list.
A similar transformation is happening in enterprises that are looking for an all-in infrastructure to run their virtualized IT applications. For enterprise computing, the equivalent of a smartphone is hyperconverged infrastructure. In a hyperconverged environment, your essential IT needs are combined into one system and work seamlessly together. All those separate products and applications of the past—backup, WAN optimization, dedupe, compression—aren’t needed anymore . Instead, there’s a SimpliVity OmniStack Solution taking care of all those details. If the platform is built correctly with the right intuitive interface you end up with a best all-in experience for HyperConvergence.
