Making Right Choice

Best features for choosing the Right HCI Solution

Several factors are critical when evaluating HCI solutions, and they are: 

Edge-core cloud integration

An HCI solution allows an organization to change, upgrade and adjust as infrastructure needs change with time and requirements.

Data Analytics

Analytics plays a crucial role in understanding operations within an HCI environment. With this feature, you can get visibility through a centralized dashboard, and it also helps in analyzing the data and getting reports on events and incidents. As a result, we can understand different trends and perform capacity planning. 

Storage management

HCI solution providers should support setting up and configuring a diverse array of storage frameworks, managing, and adapting them as situations and environments change. In addition, it should support the block file and object-oriented storage. 

Hypervisor ease of use

It will help support multiple hypervisors. In addition, it will increase the flexibility and configuration options. Especially preferred in large organizations that rely on multiple cloud providers. However, for small companies, ease of use and manageability is more important than the ability to use multiple hypervisors.

Data Protection Integration

With the essential systems and services installed to protect your data, apply policy changes throughout the organization. The protection should be scalable and adaptable to adjust as per changes in conditions. Ideally, this feature will significantly improve manageability and reduces infrastructure costs. 

Container support

Container support is also becoming popular, and many vendors support containers or plan to do so soon in the future. 

Serverless support

Serverless support or serverless solutions that support code-triggered events.
