Local governments serve communities and citizens up and down the country, underpinning services we all rely upon. This vital work needs a solid and reliable framework in order to capitalise on cloud capabilities and manage digital transformation. Azure Stack Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is designed to blend on-premises and cloud resources which will maximise storage, performance, scalability, and functionality, as a part of the built-in Azure hybrid capabilities.
What is Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI)?
HCI converges compute, storage, and management resources to a single industry‐standard x86 server, forming a seamless, software‐ defined environment. HCI is simple to use and manage, does not require specialists, and is far more cost-effective and cost-predictable than many traditional solutions.
You can take advantage of cloud capabilities with its simplified access to cloud management and Azure services. Azure Stack HCI enables you to modernise your infrastructure and consolidate virtualised workloads, reducing costs and increasing efficiency. A modern on-premises hyper converged infrastructure can
be as agile and cost-effective as the public cloud, especially when you project the costs over five years or beyond.
