IDC’s survey makes this very clear that converged and hyper-converged infrastructure is being increasingly sought for higher-IOPS (Input/output operations per second) workloads

In a recent survey, conducted by IDC to understand the adoption, benefits, challenges, and buying behavior trends in converged and hyper converged infrastructure, this has been confirmed that converged infrastructure is preferred for core applications with very high IOPS (Input/output operations per second) and low latency requirements—especially as these appliances are pre-integrated and tested for best possible performance for specific workloads.
“Based on the survey results, it is evident that organizations are willing to deploy converged technologies to reduce IT department infrastructure management burden and address new age workload demands more effectively. Converged technologies can empower the IT resources of an organization in the pursuit of innovation and support new business opportunities to generate incremental dollars”, Swapnil Bhatnagar, Research Director, IDC South Asia.
Anshuman Rai, Director Sales, Converged Platform & Solutions Division (CPSD), Dell EMC, agrees with the findings of IDC. “To remain the disruptors in the market, easily manageable and deployable technologies are the way forward for organizations and innovation and evolution of organizations will ensure growth and success for businesses. Hence, converged and hyper-converged infrastructure technologies are now being seriously considered as solutions to various challenges faced by the organizations and these are gaining fast traction across all verticals”, says Rai of Dell EMC.
The converged & hyper-converged infrastructure is very effective choices for organizations to transform the datacenter infrastructure. Improved resource utilization and staff productivity, and increased application performance due to converged technologies, help organizations achieve their critical business and IT priorities. However, to fully reap the benefits of using converged systems, technology teams should interact with the business to fully understand the potential requirements of the future.

Key findings:

  • The top three IT priorities for organizations’ in 2017 are in investing in modernizing their infrastructure to improve application performance, reducing capital IT spending on infrastructure, and investing in enterprise wide management software to improve automation.
  • Organizations that are using converged or hyper-converged infrastructure witnessed a huge positive impact on resource utilization, performance, scalability, and reduction in hardware footprint in datacenters.
  • With the deployment of converged and hyper-converged infrastructure, organizations increased the IT staff’s productivity by reducing repetitive jobs such as monitoring and provisioning, and investing that time in innovations, trying new technologies, and collaborating internally to understand the business requirements.
  • Post-deployment of converged/hyper-converged infrastructure, the time spent on provisioning was significantly reduced by 34% and that on monitoring fell by 18%. These organizations were able to invest resources in innovations (27% improvement).
  • Majority of the organizations have rated performance and quality of service as the most important attributes for a converged and hyper-converged infrastructure.
