Traditional data centres consist of various hardware components: such as Servers, Storage, Network and Backup hardware. These Infrastructure components are typically installed on-premise with an in-house IT department responsible for installing and maintaining the hardware and software. Traditional IT infrastructures are one of the most secure data hosting solutions and allow you to maintain full control of your company’s applications and data on the local server.

Hyper Converged Infrastructure
HCI architecture is a software-defined IT infrastructure that virtualises all of the elements of a conventional 3 Tier “hardware-defined” system. A hyper-converged system allows the integrated technologies to be managed as a single system through a common toolset, and the modular nature of these systems are designed to offer uninterrupted scalability. The key benefits of an HCI solution is to Lower Costs, Allow for Simpler Operations and Increase business agility.

Virtualisation is the process of creating a software-based, or virtual, representation of something, such as virtual applications, servers, storage and networks. It is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses, increase IT agility, flexibility and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Greater workload mobility, increased performance and availability of resources, automated operations – are all benefits of virtualisation that make IT simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.
A Converged Infrastructure Platform brings many benefits to our customers but in essence will simplify infrastructure deployment, management and operations, drive higher levels of Data Center standardisation, flexibility and support high-performance workloads and is aligned to the Puleng strategy of providing our customers with higher-levels of automation, clear differentiation, cost savings and time to value.
