The form of data centers is evolving, as information technologies advance. It’s been nearly 80 years since the invention of the world’s first computer, changing the world. Business efficiency has been greatly improved thanks to the computer industry flourishing, and the construction and development of new and more powerful servers and applications. Powerful data centers are burgeoning at every corner around the globe to support business needs in the digital age. From mainframe, minicomputer and physical x86 servers to virtualization, private cloud and public cloud, the IT landscape is now more diversified than ever. Data has become the worlds most valuable resource, it’s effects sprawling more widely than we ever imagined. Consider oil rigs in the seas, self-driving cars on the road or robotic arms on the production line. These things generate data, which is then sent to the cloud to be further analyzed. Also, some data needs to be stored on-premise in a secure way, due to regulations and compliance requirements. All these scenarios paved the way for the future of IT, and the future is in hybrid mode, leveraging public cloud, private cloud and edge computing to meet business requirements in a scalable, agile, economical and secure manner.
It is very likely that multiple clouds and edge locations will be required for your future business, and to make it easy to operate, you will need a modern infrastructure platform that can be deployed anywhere, with consistent operation and management. It’s not uncommon to see data centers that are fragmented by different components from different vendors. IT innovations are not at their most effective when delivered under these circumstances. That’s why Sangfor put HCI and SCP at the forefront of its cloud strategy.
With a massively simplified hyper-converged infrastructure architecture, an ever-evolving cloud management platform and a unified & consistent management plane, applications can be placed in an environment where they can perform, scale and secure at maximum capacity and at minimum cost, achieving a true hybrid IT mode.
