In 2001, VMware started a revolution. By virtualising x86 servers, they changed IT service delivery but the rest of the IT infrastructure in the data centre has simply not kept up. Hyperconverged infrastructure addresses the cost and complexity of legacy infrastructure and is one of the fastest growing segments in the $107B IT infrastructure market.
The central idea here is that all components of the IT stack (i.e. compute, storage, back up & DR, wan optimisation… etc) are all consolidated into a single 2U box. With unrivalled ‘data efficiency’ ratios and top performance, Simplivity are leading the HCI pack. Recently Simplivity were acquired by HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) which has validated their message and proves the value that the Simplivity systems continue to offer.
Whether you’re consolidating multiple data centres into one or converging IT within a single site, SimpliVity simplifies IT. Combine all IT infrastructure and data services onto x86 servers to shrink your data centre footprint tenfold, lower your CapEx and OpEx, and avoid endless refresh cycles.
Improve RPOs and RTOs dramatically with hyper-efficient backup and disaster recovery built into SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure. Reduce your dependency on legacy backup and replication products.
Optimise performance, scalability and reliability for virtual desktop computing. Drive down costs by getting more desktop workloads on less infrastructure without impairing worker productivity or user satisfaction.
Bring remote and branch offices into the fold with SimpliVity’s Unified Protected ROBO solution. SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure solution brings data protection for ROBOs and centralises management.

What Hyperconvergence Achieves
The 2016 State of Hyperconverged infrastructure Market report found that Hyperconverged infrastructure can drive significant business, operational, and financial benefits.
Avoid costly over-provisioning with a linear scale-as-you-go approach.
Reduce ongoing costs associated with managing your virtual infrastructure.
Deploy infrastructure to support business initiatives more quickly.
Reduce capital needed for technology refreshes and new infrastructure projects.
Improve operational and disaster recovery and streamline time spent on data protection tasks.
Evolution of Convergence
Convergence has evolved from the packaging of existing components to the convergence of servers, networking, and storage. Modern solutions go further and hyperconverge all IT infrastructure and data services for virtualised workloads.
