Our Hyper Converged/Hybrid cloud hardware and software solutions offer application, platform and infrastructure services, accelerating the transformation and delivery of business applications in order to drive innovation. Running applications on a Hyper Converged infrastructure allows IT organizations to speed up the delivery of services, increase IT efficiency and operate more securely significantly saving on costs. The major advantage is that the Hyper Converged cloud is deployed and hosted for a client as an operational expense (OPEX), thus allowing the client to only pay (monthly) for the IaaS and Containers that are actually being consumed, while still benefiting from scale and performance of a hybrid cloud infrastructure. VxCloud Hyper Converged infrastructure automates the provisioning, management, monitoring, and cost-metering of disparate infrastructures, including Hybrid Cloud and 18+ public clouds.
