Although every information technology infrastructure is designed differently to meet different mission needs, each system shares common components. Networking, storage, and compute are the building blocks of any information system. But how these building blocks are managed to support mission-critical agency functions is changing rapidly. As your agency moves into the 21st century and operations become more application-centric, IT and government leaders require solutions that improve agility, optimize the end user experience, and meet the needs of a more dispersed workforce.
Many government organizations find it increasingly challenging to manage these diverse components of traditional IT, particularly as the capabilities of cloud are added to the equation. Resource-constrained IT departments can’t dedicate the time, employees, or money to constantly updating disparate systems or managing the performance issues that arise when those systems aren’t integrated perfectly.
Hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI) provide a solution to these challenges by driving down costs and complexity. In fact, a Gartner report estimates that hyper-converged integrated systems will represent over 35% of total integrated system market revenue by 2019.
To learn more about how the public sector can confront growing IT complexity with hyper-convergence, we spoke with the team at Pivot3, an innovator at the leading edge of hyper-converged technology. They explained how a hyper-converged infrastructure — the scalable, efficient and resilient IT enterprise solution that Pivot3 provides — can mitigate the difficulties of advancing your agency’s technology while also providing new benefits.
In this industry perspective, we explore those benefits and examine why Pivot3 is the ideal partner to create your optimal hyper-converged infrastructure.
