Join DCIG analysts Ken Clipperton and Todd Dorsey, and George Crump, Chief Marketing Officer at VergeIO, to learn how to “Overcome the Not-So-Magnificent Seven IT Challenges.”

DCIG and VergeIO presenters review each of the seven challenges facing small to medium-sized data centers and discuss how modern infrastructure, like hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and ultraconverged infrastructure (UCI), can solve the current challenges IT organizations face, including:

  • Decreasing Budgets
  • Limited Resources
  • Aging Hardware
  • Ransomware Threats
  • Complexity
  • Massive Data Growth
  • IT services at the Edge

DCIG also discusses its evaluation of fifteen HCI/UCI software solutions from its most recent 2023-24 DCIG TOP 5 Rising Vendors HIC Software Solutions report and how they narrowed down that list to the DCIG TOP 5. VergeIO discusses UCI and how it differentiates itself from HCI.


  • Review of the Seven Challenges Facing Small to Medium-Sized Data Centers
  • Why Converged Infrastructure Software (HCI/UCI) is ideal for addressing these challenges
  • DCIG evaluation of HCI/UCI current software solutions
  • How HCI/UCI addresses each challenge
  • Q&A session
