Converged architecture systems provide an amazing level of hardware resiliency. Some businesses take this to mean that they no longer need to perform backup of data and workloads running on converged architecture. Nothing could be further from the truth.
An ESG senior analyst explains the results of their economic value validation analysis and the net value and benefits of HPE's offering.
The key to understanding converged architecture is knowing which workloads are suitable for the technology—and which aren’t. Converged architecture is great for big workloads that are critical to your business—a SharePoint or Exchange deployment, for example, or the need to host a large number of virtual machines. With these kinds of big workloads, it is important that every drop of performance can be wrung out of your hardware.
There are several technologies and configurations to optimize graphics for VDI users, with various considerations for cost and performance.
Converged architecture is tied to workload in a way that general-purpose hardware is not. For this reason, organizations need to make sure that the workloads they intend to run on converged architecture will reside on premise for the foreseeable future, rather than being transitioned to the cloud during the next few years.
