CRN on Rejecting Public Cloud for Hyperconvergence
CRN had an article this week talking about how they are seeing players in the market decide to use hyperconvergence as a means of providing cloud-like power and flexibility on premises instead of going to traditional public cloud. We love to see this in the market, of course. HCI is a great way of getting the power and flexibility that you want without having to connect over the Internet, trust or learn another vendor, deal with WAN redundancy and so forth. And with public cloud OPEX pricing, you can often build powerful HCI for a fraction of the price and use traditional CAPEX more often.
What do you guys think about HCI as a public cloud alternative for many businesses?
