The reality is this — data centers in the United States and across the globe are facing a climate crisis. Businesses are sprinting to cool down their servers as energy costs and temperatures rise. According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), there is currently a 93% chance that one year between now and 2026 will be the hottest ever recorded.
Nfina’s Hyperconverged solutions are more efficient and can aid in energy reduction. Nfina’s Hyperconverged solutions provide energy efficiency by using high-density, lower-power VMs, enabling our customers to scale their digital transformations in an upward fashion. This optimizes space, reduces power consumption, and lowers cooling and maintenance costs.
According to IDC, close to half of tallied customers noticed a 47% drop in costs of data center energy and cooling fees because of having a hyperconverged infrastructure.
A hyperconverged infrastructure has low up-front costs, making it easier to manage capital expenses and avoid over provisioning. Additionally, because HCI systems are virtual, they can be managed by any IT personnel familiar with the VMs, helping to lower overall operational costs.
Reduced Carbon Impact
Other than saving energy costs as much as possible, revamping energy efficiency is also a top priority for data centers. With a hyperconverged infrastructure implemented, the footprint in your data center will significantly decrease.
Independent servers, storage arrays, and storage networks can be restored with a singular hyperconverged solution, to establishing a nimble data center that effortlessly scales with your company. Hyperconverged infrastructure makes management of resources much simpler — authorizing you to manage every feature of your infrastructure from one location, all while simplifying complexity by separating compatibility issues between various distributors.
Nfina’s New Edge–Optimized Technology
New Edge-Optimized Technology is best for businesses with a fixed-size infrastructure. Nfina’s Edge-Optimized architecture lays out the most cost-effective option when considering up-front costs.
If your business needs grow and you find additional storage is required, with Nfina’s Edge-Optimized architecture storage can be added to an existing node or placed below that node with the addition of a JBOD. Competitors with traditional HCI architecture solutions start with a minimum of three nodes plus require a storage switch that increases power consumption. If there’s a need to expand with traditional HCI, an additional node is required, thus requiring even more power, and creating added heat.
With this type of hyperconverged technology in place, operational costs such as cooling will be substantially less — making it one of the most energy-efficient storage options for your company.
