Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) has quickly gained adoption in many IT environments due to its relative simplicity and the ability to efficiently scale the number of applications for private cloud and virtual environments. As HCI systems have matured, IT administrators and application owners have grown comfortable with their capabilities, particularly the ability to quickly scale their deployments while maintaining efficiency through the use of a consistent set of integrated management tools.
In this Lab Insight white paper, Evaluator Group reports on the findings of their in-depth testing of NetApp HCI in scenarios designed to represent typical usage in an enterprise hybrid cloud environment. Testing was designed to assess system usability, performance and Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, along with scaling and availability. Additionally, the NetApp HCI system was evaluated during unplanned events in order to understand the potential impact to availability and performance.
