More and more enterprises are transforming IT to cut costs and drive competitive advantage. Many are leveraging hyper-converged systems to build private clouds that deliver the capabilities customers demand.
Private cloud adoption is at the core of data center modernization for many companies, providing the flexibility to add or remove resources as required. Other benefits include:
Hyper-converged technology is the foundation for many private cloud deployments. In fact, global spending on HCI was more than $2 billion in 2016 and is set to surpass $7.6 billion by the end of 2021.
Aside from private cloud, IT teams are looking to converged and hyper-converged systems for greater scalability, agility, and the ability to deploy resources faster. A recent white paper highlights key benefits of hyper-converged IT through a fully integrated, pre-engineered solution such as the Dell EMC VxRail appliance (see analyst findings at right).
Whether for faster deployment, rapid scaling, simplified management or lower costs, hyper-converged systems just make sense at the core of data center modernization efforts.
A study by IDC shows that hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, such as Dell EMC VxRail, offer key performance and cost advantages versus legacy systems or other alternatives:
Today’s digital economy calls for companies to simplify their approach to IT and meet customer demands ahead of the competition. As the only fully integrated, preconfigured and pre-tested VMware hyper-converged infrastructure appliance family on the market, VxRail dramatically simplifies IT operations while lowering your overall capital and operational costs. With winning converged/hyper-converged technologies from Dell EMC and powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, you can achieve IT Transformation, accelerate innovation and deliver real results.

Average ROI assumes a discounted investment of $1.09 million over 5 years and will vary.
