Hyperconverged Infrastructure: Building Blocks for Modern Cloud-Enabled Datacenters in India
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) adoption continues to accelerate as organizations race to modernize and transform their infrastructure. Lines of business are increasingly demanding the ability to roll out new applications and data-driven services to address key business imperatives to compete and succeed in the digital economy. Organizations looking for agility, flexibility, resiliency, and cost optimization, coupled with ease of management, are finding that hyperconverged infrastructure is the perfect solution to address infrastructure technology challenges concerning every CIO today. IDC strongly believes that HCI adoption is the precursor for organizations' shift toward software-defined intelligence and API-driven infrastructure. Customers are deploying HCI for both traditional workloads as well as modern web-scale workloads to drive new business outcomes.
"Hyperconverged infrastructure is a key building block for organizations looking to build hybrid cloud infrastructure in the near future. The technology has all the key tenets to deliver a cloud-like experience. Businesses in India that are looking to build sustainable competitive advantage and succeed in DX need to seriously consider HCI as one of the key infrastructure technologies that will be among their IT priorities in the next 18 to 24 months," says Rajnish Arora, VP, Enterprise Server and Workstation, IDC Asia/Pacific.
