UNCommon common sense
For years, you’ve been using an IT architecture known as 3-Tier. This typically involves using individual x86 servers running either Windows or Linux, a shared storage array (SAN) that does either block or file storage (or both), and virtualization software. When introduced, this architecture was a significant improvement over the previous approach and ended up saving you lots of money by allowing you to virtualize your servers.
With 3-Tier you’re still managing all of the various components independently and having to deal with all of their inter-dependencies. With 3-tier, you have to manage:
But we’ll say it; 3-Tier is legacy, and no longer the way to run a modern IT infrastructure.
“The Cloud” promises an easier path. Ever wonder how Public Clouds do it? It’s no secret…they don’t run 3-Tier architecture. They use Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) in their environments because it’s easier to operate, scales easily, and is cheaper.
Let’s recap so far; you’re probably still using older, legacy 3-Tier architecture, and you endure the effort and cost of managing it all. Public Cloud is using HCI and offers simplicity of running your applications but at a high cost with added latency and questionable security.
What if you could run ALL of your applications with the simplicity of the Public Cloud in your own on-premises IT infrastructure? Wouldn’t you benefit from an infrastructure where the systems management was simplified, where scaling was easy, performance was significantly improved over your current architecture, and was less costly?
The answer is that you can. You just have to be willing to move away from the old way of doing IT infrastructure and entertain the modern way to run IT infrastructure. Just use HCI from Nutanix. Nutanix has been offering HCI for over 8 years, and there are over 15,000 customers using their platform successfully.
If you’d like to see how Nutanix operates with your applications and data, there is a hosted Proof of Concept lab that is available to you for testing. Try it out…see how it works.
Our company, Roundstone Solutions, is focused on Nutanix, and can help you take a serious look at how you can simplify your operations while saving money. Additionally, we’re able to provide an independent analysis of your current IT infrastructure and compare it to what a Nutanix HCI IT infrastructure would look like.
