According to recent ESG research, 70% of IT respondents indicated they plan to invest in HCI over the next 24 months. IT planners are increasingly turning toward HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions to simplify and speed up infrastructure deployments, ease day-to-day operational management, reduce costs, and increase IT speed and agility. HCI consists of a nodal-based architecture whereby all the required virtualized compute, storage, and networking assets are self-contained inside individual nodes. These nodes are, in effect, discrete virtualized computing resources “in a box.” However, they are typically grouped together to provide resiliency, high performance, and flexible resource pooling. And since HCI appliances can scale out to large configurations over time, these systems can provide businesses with investment protection and a simpler, more agile, and cost-effective way to deploy virtualized computing infrastructure.

While some distributed enterprises look to the cloud to reduce server sprawl and centralize operations, in many cases, the cloud simply isn’t feasible. Maybe the offices are in remote locations with limited Internet service or low-bandwidth connectivity causes issues such as latency and availability. Download the solutions brief to discover why VCE VxRail hyper-converged appliances from Dell EMC are ideal for consolidating multiple applications in a remote location onto a single, high-performance and high-availability platform that’s easy to deploy and manage.

The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure. In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters. Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability

This whitepaper details how ADCs and virtual appliances are inflexible, expensive, and lacking in visibility in contrast to the central management, autoscaling features, intelligent analytics, and flexibility offered by the Avi Vantage Platform. This document also outlines 7 key considerations that you should evaluate before you refresh your current load balancers: 1. Automation and Self-Service 2. Elasticity 3. Applica tion Analytics and Troubleshooting 4. Performance 5. Hybrid Cloud 6. Ecosystem Integrations 7. Total Cost of Ownership

As organizations continue to deploy server virtualization, questions have shifted from "if" to "how." Out of all 220 inquiries Forrester's IT infrastructure and operations team answered on data centers, servers, and virtual appliances in 2008 to date, 72 were specifically in regard to server virtualization. These IT professionals' most common inquiries addressed vendor comparison, optimum physical to virtual consolidation ratios, expected ROI, and situation-specific concerns regarding the possible benefits that virtual servers could provide. These inquiries came from organizations in the early stages of implementing server virtualization — if you are considering or are in the process of implementing, you too should be asking these questions.

Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications. Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.

Noted author Jim Metzler reports on the emergence of vWOCs, or virtual WAN Optimization Controllers. From the data center to the branch, virtualization is enabling a revolution in how WAN optimization is acquired and deployed. Whether combined with traditional physical appliances or fully virtualized, the new choices make universal network optimization a reality.
