Hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions are helping public sector organizations simplify and consolidate their infrastructure by bringing storage, compute, and networking capabilities together into a single piece of hardware. First-generation HCI solutions often fell short of the flexibility needed to truly scale resources independently. In response, NetApp has developed Enterprise-Scale HCI, designed around Solidfire all- flash storage which provides a level of scalability unlike first generation solutions. Take a look at the infographic below to see how NetApp’s Enterprise-Scale HCI is delivering guaranteed performance and transforming today’s data centers.

Guaranteed Performance: Guaranteed performance allows applications to run side by side in the same infrastructure, making it easier for you to manage applications so they don’t interfere with each other. With NetApp’s HCI, there are allowable performance requirements for any individual application so other applications are not affected.
Scale: NetApp’s HCI allows for independent scalability so capacity, compute and memory can be added incrementally. An asset from one cluster may be moved to another transparently so they can be deployed in any environment. Independently scaling avoids costly over-provisioning, simplifying capacity and performance planning.
Automation: A fully automated data center is critical to delivering on the mission as it reduces risk of human error associated with complex tasks. NetApp HCI allows IT departments to become more agile and responsive by simplifying deployment and ongoing management. A robust suite of APIs enables integration into higher-level management, orchestration, backup, and disaster-recovery tools.
Data Fabric: HCI integrates fully into NetApp’s Data Fabric for enhanced data portability, protection and visibility. NetApp’s Data Fabric provides choice for customers, allowing you to unleash the full power of data across your environment – whether on-premise or in your public or hybrid cloud.
