The 4th Era of IT Infrastructure: Beyond Hyperconverged to Superconverged Systems

Hear about the emerging 4th generation of IT infrastructures that comes after hyperconverged -- called superconverged. Superconverged systems combine the best of converged and hyperconverged systems, while providing new capabilities beyond what either provides. They make it extremely easy for customers to consume IT and meet all of their performance, resiliency, and cost objectives. Join our session to learn how Cloudistics Chief Scientist and IBM Fellow Emeritus, Jai Menon, views superconverged systems, and how it meets the IT infrastructure requirements of today.

What you will take away from this session

  • Reduced Operational Complexity and Unified Management: Servers, storage, networking, virtualization and an application marketplace are all tightly integrated and managed using an API from a single SaaS portal
  • Agility and Cost-Effectiveness: Native line speed network virtualization is combined with compute and storage virtualization to create a truly agile SDDC in which infrastructure allocated to an application is neither over or under provisioned.
  • Predictable Performance: All-flash storage and high performance networks support tier-1 applications with high performance
  • Workload Diversity: Network, storage, and compute resources can be scaled independently to deliver agile and dynamic environments that support all workloads, including emerging ones like Docker.
