I have to provide an answer on this question ever so often to customers gauging their pace with storage market.
Looking from a business perspective [Companies are at risk of missing market opportunities and or failing to adapt to market trends].
As I sense customers readiness to adapt quickly to changes as this is a key to their success, this is becoming a legitimate question for business.
In an attempt to broadly answer to the above question. I have rather decided to submit it to experts and professionals viewpoints; to elaborate further on the business benefits SMB and Enterprise businesses are gaining from Hyper-converged.
Can you share a list of problems that Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) helps resolve for an enterprise? If applicable, please provide some concrete examples.
There are a lot of vendors offering HCI solutions. What is the #1 most important criteria to look for when evaluating solutions?
Help your peers cut through the vendor hype and make the best decision.
