Storage Remains a Factor in Hyper-converged Infrastructure Deployment Decisions

Anyone in attendance at VMworld last week in Las Vegas and walking through the exhibit hall where all of the vendors showcased their wares could hardly miss the vast numbers of hyper-converged infrastructure and hyper-converged like vendors in attendance. Cisco, Dell, EMC, HPE, Nutanix, Maxta, Cohesity, Pivot3, Rubrik, Simplivity and Datrium, just to name a few, and I am sure there were others.

Yet in the face of the changes that are about to sweep through the technology industry, a technology provider that touches as many organizations around the world as HPE does needs to have more than this type of mindset. It needs to have the products and strategy in place to back it up. Based upon what I saw at HPE Discover last week, HPE is executing upon these requirements.

In today’s enterprise data centers, when one thinks performance, one thinks flash. That’s great. But that thought process can lead organizations to think that “all-flash arrays” are the only option they have to get high levels of performance for their applications. That thinking is now so outdated.
