Prime your business for growth with a software-defined approach. The current business-enterprise climate demands robust connectivity and delivery in services. As IT executives continue to invest in integrated infrastructure, companies that remain committed to hardware-centric infrastructure are being left behind and subsequently are exposing their enterprises to risk and loss. Liabilities include time wastage and financial costs in the management and maintenance of legacy infrastructure, creating a deficit in executives’ energy when it comes to innovation and future planning. VMware’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is a malleable, sophisticated solution which facilitates the vital transition from physical to virtualized storage solutions. HCI is the foundation for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) destined for leading enterprise operations.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability and complete protection of the

The Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is an overarching philosophy for implementing better data centers. The most basic way to think about an SDDC is as a combination of virtualized computing resources, plus software-defined storage and networking. In addition, SDDC often includes overarching security aspects: in other words, SDDC abstracts and automates all the compute, storage and networking aspects that are traditionally physical, and it can put that automation and abstraction to use in enhancing security.

Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage. Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to deliver solutions at a much faster pace. As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio. It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking, and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.

"All-Flash Storage for Dummies, NetApp Special Edition, explores the expanding role of all-flash storage in the enterprise. Originally used to accelerate performance for dedicated, mission-critical applications, all-flash arrays are now replacing disk and hybrid-flash systems as the preferred storage systems for virtualized environments. At the same time, scale-out solutions have emerged that are designed to power the new cloud services of the future. The book examines various elements of all-flash storage: how it evolved, and why you should now consider it for all of your primary applications. You get acquainted with the NetApp portfolio of all-flash storage solutions and learn how each is designed to meet the needs of a specific type of application environment. You’ll also learn five strategies for making smart decisions about all-flash arrays for your next storage project. In that classic Dummies style, you’ll walk away with useful tips on how to select and deploy all-flash

According to recent ESG research, 70% of IT respondents indicated they plan to invest in HCI over the next 24 months. IT planners are increasingly turning toward HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions to simplify and speed up infrastructure deployments, ease day-to-day operational management, reduce costs, and increase IT speed and agility. HCI consists of a nodal-based architecture whereby all the required virtualized compute, storage, and networking assets are self-contained inside individual nodes. These nodes are, in effect, discrete virtualized computing resources “in a box.” However, they are typically grouped together to provide resiliency, high performance, and flexible resource pooling. And since HCI appliances can scale out to large configurations over time, these systems can provide businesses with investment protection and a simpler, more agile, and cost-effective way to deploy virtualized computing infrastructure.

Organizations looking to implement desktop and app virtualization traditionally play a guessing game where storage is concerned. When considering local and physical storage, determining what would be necessary for the virtualized world is difficult and can be overwhelming. This is especially true when determining how virtualizing desktops will impact the storage architecture. Organizations risk over sizing their environment thereby wasting CapEx, or under-sizing and potentially ruining the user experience. Software-defined storage solutions, such as VMware Virtual SAN, provide simplified solutions with high performance data stores that offer fine-grained scalability with linearly-predictable performance as demand grows. Dell’s validated and certified desktop virtualization solutions incorporate vSphere and Virtual SAN, and provide a complete end-to-end solution that allows companies to grow and expand without large capital investments in SAN hardware.

VMware Horizon View is an enterprise-class desktop virtualization solution that delivers virtualized or remote desktops and applications to end users through a single platform. Horizon View is a tightly integrated, end-to-end solution built on the industry-leading virtualization platform, VMware vSphere. Although Horizon View enables levels of availability and agility of desktop services unmatched by traditional PCs, the complexity of deploying and managing thousands of virtual desktops in a VMware environment can be daunting without the right tools. Storage is often the leading cause of end-user performance problems. The NetApp all-flash FAS solution with the FAS8000 platform solves the performance problems commonly found in VDI deployments. In this reference architecture, NetApp tested VMware Horizon View user and administrator workloads to demonstrate how the NetApp all-flash FAS solution eliminates the most common barriers to virtual desktop adoption.
