While there are significant potential benefits when an organization migrates to a hyperconverged system, true cost and real life experience are critical to the decision making process. In order to effectively establish a case for going to one platform vs. another, strong fact-based analytical methodologies and approaches are needed.
In this paper the case for Hyper-Converged Appliances, powered by Intel® Xeon® processor, and in particular the EMC VCE VxRail Appliance, is made from both cost and measureable effort perspectives. Strict reliance on measurables was used in lieu of anecdotal observations or customer quoted benefits in order to provide realistic and repeatable analysis.
