SimpliVity: Transforming the Data Center with Virtualization and Storage Convergence

The data center has fast been transformed by the emergence and mainstream adoption of virtualization over merely the past decade. Virtualization has changed the ability of IT to deploy and manage workloads, and lent tremendous power to the administrator for manipulating those workloads in clever ways. At onset, virtualization first became appealing to most users because it promised to homogenize a rather difficult part of the physical data center through a layer of software abstraction. Such abstraction would make configuration and deployment difficulties associated with physical server hardware and fat operating systems melt away. The rewards from this undertaking were tremendous – untold buckets of operational dollars were saved by avoiding time and effort intensive rack, power, install, and configure cycles that would occur repeatedly to facilitate application development, testing, production deployment, cycle replacements, break/fix, and more. The changes have infused the business with a new ability to leverage IT, and to do so at lower cost and with less risk of disruption.

The transformation is not yet complete, as the full promise of virtualization is inhibited by the underlying physical infrastructure of the data center. Realization of the need to address the infrastructure complexity problem is driving a flurry of innovation in the market. With an eye on what we call hyperconvergence, we’ll briefly survey innovations emerging in response to on-going virtualization challenges, evaluate how these technologies will impact the datacenter over the next few years, and highlight one vendor as an early innovator bringing these changes to the market: SimpliVity. Unlike early players who have converged a few aspects of the IT Infrastructure stack – rudimentary storage and server functionality – SimpliVity has assimilated all the functionality of the IT Infrastructure on to a single platform. Each such unit – OmniCube, as SimpliVity calls it – offers a complete set of data center infrastructure functionality at a fraction of the acquisition and operating costs of separate IT systems. But hyperconvergence will bring about change far bigger than costs, and may well transform how IT is done. Let’s take a look.

Hyperconvergence tackles storage and server strain

The simplicity of all-in-one data center offerings makes hyperconvergence popular with smaller businesses. After spending more than a decade selling IT shops on the benefits of separate server and storage environments, IT infrastructure vendors are starting to take a different tack, bundling servers and storage -- and in some cases, networking -- into Lego-like modules. The big plus is, they scale for capacity and performance, and they're managed as a single system.
