Develop and Test at the Speed of Business
SimpliVity provides a highly efficient, agile infrastructure that meets the rapidly changing demands of application development and testing (dev/test) environments. SimpliVity’s inherent data efficiencies and VM-centric management capabilities, plus seamless integration with key orchestration tools, dramatically simplify operations and accelerate IT service agility. Software developers and test engineers can initiate services without any IT involvement.
Using SimpliVity for Dev and Test
SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure provides a scalable building block of x86 server resources. This modular solution replaces the entire data center stack below the hypervisor. It folds in storage, compute, and hypervisor, with inline deduplication, compression, and optimization, along with comprehensive data management, data protection, and disaster recovery capabilities.
Meet the Rapidly Changing Demands of Test/Dev Environments
SimpliVity provides an agile infrastructure suitable for any workload. Hyperconverged building blocks can be deployed in minutes and repurposed as new projects emerge and requirements change. VM-centric management increases service agility and eliminates manually intensive, error-prone administrative tasks.
Empower End-Users to Provision Resources on their Own
Allow software developers and test engineers to provision their own resources through orchestration and automation tools like VMware vRealize Automation and Cisco UCS Director, with support for self-service provisioning, and chargeback. Virtual machines can be cloned in minutes or seconds.
Deliver Infrastructure as Cost-Effective as Public Cloud–No Tradeoffs
SimpliVity offers a cost-per-VM superior to Amazon Web Services, with comparative savings of 22% to 49% over three years and inclusive of labor, power, licensing, and other typical on-premises costs. Provide dev teams with an on-premises infrastructure as cost-effective as public cloud, without the tradeoffs of moving data offsite.
Eliminate Redundant Test/Dev Data and Save on Storage
Inline deduplication, compression, and optimization of all data at inception, across all storage tiers, drives incredible efficiencies. The average efficiency ratio is 40:1, with over a third of customers getting 100:1 or more. Unmatched data efficiency from SimpliVity means users save on bandwidth-related expenses and use less storage capacity to run VMs. Additionally, existing servers can be used to independently scale compute and memory, reduce CAPEX, and maximize current infrastructure investments.
SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure provides a scalable, reliable, and agile foundation for application development and testing. The solution eliminates infrastructure cost and complexity, and provides essential integrations for self-service provisioning and orchestration of test/dev workloads.
