The Problem with the Legacy Datacenter
Legacy infrastructure—with separate storage, storage networks, and servers—is not well suited to meet the growing demands of a service- oriented delivery model or the fast pace of modern business. The silos used in traditional datacenters have become a barrier to rapid adaptation, adding complexity to every step from…ordering to deployment to management.
Enterprise IT teams today are looking for ways to deliver on- premises technology services with the speed and operational efficiency of the public cloud. The Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure is the perfect bridge between the static siloes of a legacy environment and the dynamic scalability of the cloud.
The Transition Challenge
However, the conversion from a legacy infrastructure to hyperconverged can be a challenge. While it’s important to decide which hypervisor and hardware will serve as the foundation for the new infrastructure, it’s absolutely critical to determine the migration process. Which applications and workloads need to be moved over first? How much compute power or storage will they require? What impact will they have to their users? All these factors must be compiled before the transformation can occur.
