Hyperconvergence is an attractive option in today’s changing data center. However, many organizations have reservations about such a change, especially when it stands to change more than just technology.
Hyperconvergence changes the operational practice of an IT organization, and dictates that IT administrators and executives alike view the infrastructure from a fresh perspective.
The first set of challenges encountered when an organization evaluates the move to hyperconverged infrastructure is made up of questions like “How do we perform the migration?” and “How do we manage it moving forward?”
The second set of challenges come on the back side of the migration – IT professionals have to decide how their organization changes and how their administration practices change moving forward. They have to answer questions like “How does hyperconvergence change our IT infrastructure team?” and “How does hyperconvergence change our IT budgeting for hardware refresh?”
This paper addresses both sets of challenges to help IT practitioners feel comfortable while modernizing their datacenter with hyperconverged infrastructure.
