Hyperconverged systems are powerful platforms that really took the industry by storm. With built-in automation, high-density architecture, and high-performance chassis, converged systems help architect a very robust cloud and storage environment. The idea is to create unparalleled density and allow for resources to be delivered as effectively as possible. Furthermore, industry trends indicate that the pace of adoption of converged systems will only continue to grow. According to a recent Gartner report, hyper-converged integrated systems will represent over 35% of total integrated system market revenue by 2019. This makes it one of the fastest-growing and most valuable technology segments in the industry today.

With all of this, there needs to be an understanding around use-cases. And, one of the biggest reasons to adopt hyperconverged infrastructure is for its ability to deliver powerful resiliency, backup, and recovery capabilities. Organizations are leveraging HCI to increase uptime while still staying extremely agile. In this webinar, we break down the components of HCI and discuss why they’re so critical to backup and disaster recovery. Specifically, we'll cover:

  • Major trends around data center, cloud and convergence
  • Challenges facing the business and data center today
  • The evolution of the "digital" market
  • The cost of downtime is increasing - What are you doing to protect your ecosystem?
  • HCI - Build for redundancy, backup, and disaster recovery
  • Best practices around deploying HCI for a DR or backup environment
