제목 [기본] [NUTANIX] Highlights From Gartner's 2014 Data Center Conference 날짜 2014.12.05 12:27
글쓴이 관리자 조회 2671

최근 미국 Las Vegas에서 개최된 Gartners 2014 Data Center Conference에서 Converged system은 하드웨어 보다는 소프트웨어적인 접근이어야 하고 이에 대해서 NUTANIX가 앞서가고 있으며 VMware, Cisco, Simplivity 등이 NUTANIX를 모방하고 있다고 언급하고 있습니다. 아래 기사 내용 참고하시기 바랍니다.

  • On the converged systems side, Cisco has been the poster child, seeing strong success with its UCS-based converged systems strategy, working with multiple storage partners including EMC (Vblock), NetApp (FlexPod), Nimble (SmartStack), and most recently IBM (VersaStack, announced today). Over the longer term, however, we believe that the key to a good converged system will depend more on software rather than specific hardware components and that vendors such as Nutanix that offer flexibility in server, storage, and hypervisor platform selection; simple-to-use management software; scalability; and a rich feature set (particularly for data protection and high-availability) will emerge as architectural winners. We are already seeing multiple vendors such as Simplivity, Stratoscale (which Cisco recently invested in), and VMware with its EVO Rail platform trying to imitate the Nutanix hyperconverged model, albeit with fewer features and limited scalability and flexibility.

Highlights From Gartner's 2014 Data Center Conference

?

  • Summary: We attended Gartner's Data Center Summit in Las Vegas, and our primary observation was that new infrastructure deployment models are emerging in the data center with two seemingly opposing trends. On the one hand, converged infrastructure is enjoying strong adoption while the white-box, open-source, disaggregated, do-it-yourself (DIY) approach is also gaining steam. A secondary observation is that white-box switching is maturing and threatening the status quo, although Cisco will not go down without a fight.
  • Converged Versus DIY: The converged approach to IT infrastructure is best suited for enterprises that lack in-house IT expertise and are looking for one-throat-to-choke serviceability, preintegrated and pretuned appliances, and easy-to-deploy solutions. In the converged approach, brand trumps best-of-breed components as organizations rely on a single vendor to integrate all the components in an optimal fashion and shift focus from individual component management to a system-level, more holistic management approach. On the other hand, the disaggregated DIY approach makes sense for the largest players that are focused on price and have sufficient in-house IT expertise to integrate various components together, write their own code, and/or adopt open source-based solutions.
