The Nfina 2216R-E hyperconverged device is optimal for mid-sized to larger companies that require a higher amount of VMs, storage capacity, and more performance than mid-level models. This hyperconverged, eight-bay server delivers better security, redundancy, and faster data response times by storing the most valuable and relevant data on the Edge of your network, where information frequently flows. The Nfina 2216R-E device used in a hyperconverged solution simplifies, protects, and ransomware proofs your business data. Copies of critical data are maintained on and off-site, assuring information is always available for ransomware recovery and downtime is limited. Fully managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) options are also available with this model.
