Autodata has been providing effective data centre solutions since 1986, and as technology has evolved we’ve consistently kept ahead of the curve.
Hyperconverged infrastructures (unifying server, storage, and networks into a single framework) have helped transform the economics of running a data centre, accelerating the transition to cloud-ready infrastructure.
- Compute (Server/Hyperconverged)
- Fabric Switching
- Storage (NAS/SAN/Hyperconverged)
- Virtualisation (Server-based – VMware and Hyper-V)
- Cloud (Public and Hybrid)
Today’s businesses are expected to champion innovations, remain aligned with evolving objectives and provide new and unique experiences to customers. The cloud promises to help achieve these goals more quickly, more efficiently and at a lower cost, but it can be a complex task adapting your existing environment to a new I.T. model.
Where traditional data-centre architecture contained and managed physical infrastructures, the increased deployment of virtual environments and applications requires a more sophisticated, hybrid approach which introduces challenges of its own.
Hyperconverged infrastructures break down the traditional ‘siloed’ infrastructure by flattening down data-centre architecture so that compute, networking and storage are abstracted from the CPUs, racks, cabling, controllers and switches. Abstracting the operating system from the CPUs and adding a single point of management revitalises the network architecture by creating a more dynamic network fabric, a process known as software defined networking (SDN).
At its core, hyperconverged infrastructure eliminates much of the work when it comes to the provisioning of servers, SAN, LAN and applications. Whilst once this provisioning could require multiple teams working on the job, it now allows for plug-and-play options which are ready to go out of the box.
