Read on to Claim Your Free Hyperconvergence Software
Hyperconvergence promises to reduce operational costs compared to buying traditional servers, storage and storage networking. But hardware-based hypercoverged appliances have some significant drawbacks that limit choice and flexibility for IT. Ultimately, this leads to much higher long-term costs, particularly compared to software-based solutions. The drawbacks of hyperconverged hardware appliances include:
Vendor lock-in. Buying a hardware appliance solution can lock you in to the platform for the long-term – just like traditional storage array vendors. Even software hyperconvergence platforms can lock you in to a hypervisor platform.
A refresh tax. When it’s time to refresh systems, customers have to buy a new appliance – paying for the software in full again. IT managers also have to refresh compute and storage together, forcing them to either let compute age beyond its useful life or waste money refreshing storage before its time.
An upgrade tax. Appliances can’t scale in small increments, can’t be upgraded if capacity needs to grow slightly, and can’t scale storage and compute separately. That imposes a costly “upgrade tax” since enterprises have to both buy ahead and buy more compute or storage than they need.
