Why use converged infrastructures?

The design of traditional data centre architectures addressed predictable workloads, structured data, and dedicated access. However, requirements now demand the exact opposite, with unpredictable workloads such as cloud, virtualisation, and big data applications.

Converged infrastructure is the ideal solution to meet these new requirements, acting as pre-built and pre-configured systems that can be up-and-running in hours or days instead of weeks or months. Its simple management cuts across the technology stack, making the addition of services and applications faster and easier than ever before.

Gurg works proficiently with the leading converged infrastructure solutions that typically combine technologies such as compute, storage, networking, and management into a single integrated platform, which delivers immediate data centre optimisation.

We also work closely with strategic partners to enable hyper-convergence, which applies principles of the software-defined infrastructure to converged platforms. In this way, compute, storage, and networking resources are pooled within a single appliance that is controlled by software.
