Hyperconverged infrastructure doesn’t get any easier than this!

Ever since hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) arrived in data centers in 2011, organizations have been drastically reducing complexity, delivering simplicity and scalability all while reducing cost.

In many ways, HCI’s advantages mirror those of Parallels RAS beautifully, and that is why they make such a great solution together.

The rise of hyperconverged infrastructure

In response to infrastructure complexity and the growing demand for specialized skills, HCI emerged as a transformational approach.

As digital transformation and cloud architecture accelerated, the concept of shifting infrastructure intelligence to an orchestrated software layer became compelling.

By combining compute, virtualization, networking, and storage into software-defined building blocks, organizations could effortlessly consume and automate these resources.

Consequently, the need for costly specialist tools and extensive human intervention to maintain the infrastructure diminished.

Why organizations continue to embrace hyperconverged infrastructure 

This cloud orchestration model offered simplicity and efficiency, propelling the rapid growth of the HCI sector within a few years.

Embracing this software-defined approach meant that hardware became easily interchangeable, allow companies to make updates or switch hardware without disrupting services provided. Additionally, the centralized control from a single console empowered administrators to make informed decisions while the HCI software orchestrated the execution.

Organizations could achieve a true cloud operating model while retaining control.

How HCI simplifies IT administration  

This revolutionary approach eliminated the necessity for specialized skills in each infrastructure area, enabling more versatile teams to deliver equivalent levels of service.

In addition to this new simplicity, with HCI’s integration of compute, networking, and storage into unified building blocks, the performance of applications dramatically improved.

Reduced latency, enhanced speed in HCI environments

Virtual resources gained quick access to locally stored data, significantly reducing latency compared to traditional architectures. This exceptional boost in application experience makes HCI an ideal solution for delivering virtual applications and desktops, such as those offered by Parallels RAS.

Now more than ever employees demand simplicity, speed, and consistent experiences when consuming applications and data.

Consistent IT performance with HCI

Whether it’s a Monday or a Friday, performance should remain consistent, and running a query at any time should yield a response in the same amount of time.

By leveraging the power of HCI as the foundation for Parallels RAS, these expectations can be surpassed.

HCI’s wide adoption by organizations of all sizes as a way to deliver virtual applications and desktops underscores its capability in delivering a superior experience.

Simplicity and consistency are the cornerstones of this combined solution. HCI provides a single console, offering seamless administration and management of compute, storage, networking, security, and more.

How Parallels RAS boosts the impact of HCI

Parallels RAS complements and extends the power of HCI is by providing an easy-to-use, unified console for managing various application delivery methods hosted on HCI and elsewhere, including Remote Desktop Services, single-session VDI, connections to physical workstations, and direct orchestration of multiple Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) subscriptions.

Moreover, secure access, load balancing, monitoring and reporting, image management, auditing and much more can all be configured simply and consistently from within this unified console.

By embracing Parallels RAS alongside HCI, you unlock a streamlined path to delivering high-performance, consistent application and desktop experiences to your users. This aligned or combined approach not only saves time and money but also enhances the lives of your employees.     Experience what HCI and Parallels RAS can do together. Leading HCI vendors, such as Nutanix, Scale Computing, and HPE have already forged official technology partnerships with Parallels.
