Hyper Converged Infrastructure, 2019

With global hyper-converged sales now accounting for around 47 percent of the total converged systems market, Dell has been innovating rapidly with VMware in the space. VxRail, which is jointly engineered alongside VMware, is the foundation for the company’s Dell’s Cloud architecture. VxRail enhancements this year includes new systems based on the latest Intel and PowerEdge server technologies. HCI is not the right fit for everyone, although facing stiff competition from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Dell remains the worldwide leader in servers and storage.

The CI/HCI world continues to evolve and do so quickly. This space did not exist as a tangible market six or seven years ago. Now enterprise IT groups are evaluating CI/HCI solutions with almost every new application deployment, VDI deployment, or infrastructure refresh/growth investment. This topic is one that is discussed in almost every meeting. Here at TIG we would to sit down with you and your team to begin the evaluation of CI/HCI and how these technologies could benefit or transform your business. CI/HCI solutions set the stage for massive IT transformation through elimination of silos and creation of green-field environments for IaaS and PaaS platforms.



Companies storing data on the cloud face multiple regulatory and compliance hurdles. In addition, economies such as Turkey have regulations that require data to be stored locally, in turn, boosting the demand for HCI systems across the globe. Hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) systems allow organizations to keep data safe in their on premise data centers, and provide multiple data protection features such as snapshots, replication, and encryption. These systems also include features such as redundant array of independent disks (RAID) and erasure coding, which helps to keep multiple copies of data in different systems. Some systems also come with built-in disaster recovery features, which aid in preventing business downtime. Such enhanced data protection offered by HCI systems will boost their adoption during the forecast period.

Demystifying the “Software-Defined Data Center”

Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is all the rage. Everyone’s talking about it, but why?

For some, it’s extending the Data Center to the Cloud for simple and fast consumption of resources for workloads, or automation of simple tasks. For others, it may be off-site locations for disaster recovery and business continuity. Whatever the reason, IT is being tasked with provisioning resources for workloads, or faster pace and with guaranteed up time. Insert Software to achieve these ever-increasing SLAs (Service Level Agreements). TIG offers multiple solutions to automate tasks, which in the past would require a ton of time from the Administration team. This took focus from the day-to-day management of the infrastructure and meant potentially leaving migrated workloads less secure or inaccessible. In the last couple of years, TIG has had the ability to architect solutions that leverage virtual networking*, IT automation*, and VSAN*. These solutions can apply policies, so no matter where a Virtual Machine resides, it will have the same security firewall policies and address. Automation streamlines tasks to allow users to request and provision VMs onsite or in the Cloud, and manage life cycle and tear down. TIG has the capable tools to predict the resource consumption*, resource contention*, and where resources may be over provisioned*. This provides detailed reporting on where IT should invest funds to achieve maximum results. These are just a few examples TIG has at its fingertips; we are currently using them internally, implementing into Data Centers across the US and Canada. The easiest and most comprehensive way to help you understand what migration to SDDC looks like – and the potential benefits – is to begin with one of TIG’s assessments. From there, we can help you with Cloud, Automation, Disaster Recovery, Security, Networking, Wireless, Analytics, Business Intelligence and many other solutions.
