Since the tech boom of the 1990s, legacy three-tier infrastructures have dominated at many corporations and tech firms. Once so game-changing, the three silos of dedicated storage, network, and server, now hold companies back, making management and deployment more complex than they need be, locking IT into 5-year plans that often quickly lose their relevance as the business world and tech continue to evolve.
By today’s standards, these legacy structures are too complex, driving up costs and limiting an enterprise’s ability to scale up as needed. While 3-tier infrastructures sustained corporations for decades now, expanding demand for increased performance, speedier time-to-market, and streamlined management have driven many enterprises in a new direction— towards Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI). With expansive benefits that include enhanced scalability and efficiency along with a healthier bottom line, many tech firms and corporations are turning to HCI to maintain a competitive edge. Driven by flexible, high-performance bare metal servers, OVHcloud’s approach to hyperconvergence provides corporations with a way to design their own clouds and drive innovation and performative execution. HCI, in short, is the go-to for companies that want cloud-ready data centers and an edge that keeps them competitive.
