  • 7:00-7:45 - Hyperconvergence 3.0 with SimpliVity

  • Description: 
    • Virtualization has been widely adopted by the IT industry but existing architectures were designed before the introduction of virtualization adding complexities that blunt the benefits. The answer is to provide an architecture that accommodates virtualization instead of trying to “shoehorn” it into a legacy design. Hyperconvergence from SimpliVity maximizes the benefits of virtualization. It is the future of IT.
    • Did you know that IDC reported that the hyper-converged market will grow at a 65% CAGR from 2014-2019, 4 to 5 times the rate of conventional infrastructure. Why?… Hyperconvergence enables a drastically simplified data center, built for virtualized applications, designed to dramatically improve operational efficiency, increase data protection and lower TCO allowing organizations to move to market faster with new application development. SimpliVity is a leading Hyper-Converged Infrastructure solutions provider. Based in Westborough, they are one of Massachusetts’ five "technology unicorns" (companies valued at over $1B). And, they are the only vendor to offer Hyperconverged 3.0 features and benefits.
    • Their solution includes an advanced accelerator card enabling them to maximize virtual machine performance, reduce IOPs and minimize bandwidth requirements. We will lead a discussion around the following topics:

      • 1. The challenges in the data center today
      • 2. The changing of the guard
      • 3. The vision for a simplified data center
      • 4. How to sort through the hype in the marketplace
    • SimpliVity is so confident in their revolutionary Data Virtualization Platform they guarantee a 10:1 data reduction via deduplication and compression and they also guarantee to Backup & Restore a 1TB Virtual Machine in less than 60 seconds. 
    • On average, customers achieve a 30:1 ratio. Learn more here and see the phone home data here.  Independent studies have shown SimpliVity's customers save 224% ROI with a 6.6 month payback on average. Please come to our MeetUp and learn more… We look forward to meeting you!
