DATA-HUNGRY WORKLOADS IN YOUR VMWARE VSAN BASED DATA CENTER?
One of the questions that comes up often when I meet architects around the world designing data center modernization with Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is, “How important is the hardware for HCI deployment?” Given HCI solutions are software-defined and the software magically virtualizes and manages all of the compute, storage and networking features, users sometimes forget that it can only virtualize hardware that is actually there. HCI has matured over the years and is now deployed in mission critical data centers because of its ability to offer various storage features on par with traditional arrays, while scaling-out storage as needed. HCI software, no matter how optimized, needs to have the right hardware configurations to support the software optimizations in order to optimize performance. The HCI software storage features, when enabled, take significant compute and storage cycles. Proper consideration must be taken to understand this when choosing the right hardware components to design HCI clusters. READ MORE
