Find Out How to Make IT More Agile with Hitachi Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Published on 9 January 2023

Hitachi HCI

Have you ever struggled with the complexity of IT infrastructure management? Perhaps you’ve had to manage the functions of each IT infrastructure independently, leading to weeks or even months of work to release a new application. If this sounds familiar, it’s a sign that your IT infrastructure needs modernization. One effective modernization strategy is to implement Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI).

HCI centralizes IT resources and management, promising simplified, high-performance IT infrastructure at a lower cost. Notably, an increasing number of companies are transitioning to HCI. According to Allied Market Research Findings, the HCI market share was valued at US$3.85 million in 2018, and it’s projected to reach US$33.16 million by 2026, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 30.7 percent from 2019 to 2026.

The application of HCI technology can be the ideal solution for streamlining all IT infrastructure matters, particularly given the substantial potential HCI offers. Before delving into the advantages of HCI, it’s essential to understand what HCI is, which will be covered in the following article.

What is HCI?

Apa itu HCI

If you’re wondering about HCI, here’s a comprehensive explanation: HCI is an IT framework that combines computing, storage, and networking into a single platform, making management more straightforward. HCI systems are designed for flexibility and scalability, and they can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud.

In an HCI system, all components are managed and configured through a single interface, simplifying overall management. HCI is often implemented in private cloud environments and provides a more cost-effective and user-friendly alternative to traditional IT infrastructure.

What Are the Benefits of HCI for Business?

HCI offers streamlined IT infrastructure management along with various benefits. Here are some of them:

1. Increased IT Efficiency

HCI can eliminate manual processes and reduce the need for extensive IT personnel. When implementing HCI, only one team is required to monitor and manage the entire IT infrastructure. Additionally, the IT team can effectively manage storage requirements, including capacity and workload distribution, for improved efficiency. All IT resources are automatically managed, reducing complexity.

2. Reduced Capital Expenditure (CAPEX)

Through HCI, businesses can lower CAPEX by reducing the demand for expensive, custom network infrastructure. HCI allows scalable architecture adjustments to match specific needs, resulting in reduced IT infrastructure expenses.

3. Greater Responsiveness

HCI facilitates quick scalability by adding more nodes to storage. This responsiveness makes implementing changes and upgrades easier, with a thanks to high-performance, easily scalable IT infrastructure.
