Scaling Performance for Enterprise HCI Environments
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) has quickly gained adoption in many IT environments due to its relative simplicity and the ability to efficiently scale the number of applications for private cloud and virtual environments.
As HCI systems have matured, IT administrators and application owners have grown comfortable with their capabilities, particularly the ability to quickly scale their deployments while maintaining efficiency through the use of a consistent set of integrated management tools.
According to the latest Evaluator Group research of HCI, many companies express concern over the capabilities of their HCI environments, particularly regarding performance and scalability, along with data protection and disaster recovery features.
In order to assess the capabilities of NetApp’s HCI system, Evaluator Group was asked to evaluate it in our lab using a variety of typical enterprise workloads and use cases.
