It wasn’t that long ago it was unheard of for an SMB to use virtualization technologies. However, a lot has changed since then. According to Techaisle’s SMB Server Virtualization Adoption market trends study, U.S. SMB server virtualization penetration was 41 percent in 2013 and grew to 54 percent in 2015.That trend continues to this day as SMBs have joined enterprises in their migration away from the “one-server-for-one-application” model, running multiple apps on one physical server and realizing equal or better performance and reliability with the right solution.

8 reasons to consider hyperconverged infrastructure for your data center

Article | March 1, 2020

Demand for on-premises data center equipment is shrinking as organizations move workloads to the cloud.

HCI is a form of scale-out, software-integrated infrastructure that applies a modular approach to compute, network and storage capacity. Rather than silos with specialized hardware, HCI leverages distributed, horizontal blocks of commodity hardware and delivers a single-pane dashboard for reporting and management. Form factors vary: Enterprises can choose to deploy hardware-agnostic hyperconvergence software from vendors such as Nutanix and VMware, or an integrated HCI appliance from vendors such as HP Enterprise, Dell, Cisco, and Lenovo.
