Why a Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) adds value to your business and reduces TCO


Hyper-converged Infrastructure (HCI) has become the fastest growing storage segment. Industry analysts are projecting this shift will continue to accelerate: HCI will take over the bulk of the traditional storage market over the next 10 years. A HCI-based approach to storage brings one of the most fundamental advantages:

Business Value and a Lower TCO

This starts with the upfront, capital costs of infrastructure. HCI allows customers to shift away from traditional, purpose built storage where costs for capacity and networking are still high with a limited set of choices. In fact, customers are usually locked-in to the one vendor that made their storage array. Another contributor to lower TCO is the lower cost of operational expenses. Get rid of silo’s and time consuming infrastructure. Learn how HCI results in lower initial capex and opex costs over time as the environment scales with the need of your business.
