Technology leaders worldwide are embracing hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) as a means of efficiently building software-defined datacenters. Unfortunately, networking is often overlooked as an integral element in HCI offerings.
This oversight results in suboptimal HCI implementations and detrimentally impacts service quality, reliability, availability, scalability and performance. What’s more, excluding integrated networking from the solution can prevent enterprises from successfully pursuing their hybrid cloud and digital transformation strategies.
In this webinar replay, IDC analyst Brad Casemore provides an overview of why enterprises are adopting HCI, the crucial role integrated networking plays in an HCI architecture, and what a fully validated and end-to-end network architecture at scale should look like.
