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.
New kinds of workloads, user demands and infrastructure technologies are affecting how data center providers deploy and utilize various critical resources. Organizations across all verticals are changing the way they control and distribute resources, which includes looking for more efficient ways to create a scalable data center ecosystem.

The converged architecture model has a number of benefits. You can reduce your overall data center footprint, support more business use cases, create greater levels of agility, and generally support the business in dealing with today’s dynamic market changes. With all of that said, when deploying converged architecture, you have to take design and resource utilization into consideration.
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.
