There is a rapid expansion in the amount of data that organizations need to process. As more data is generated, it is becoming harder for IT organizations to quickly and efficiently scale the infrastructure to keep up with demand. It is for this reason that digital transformation strategies go hand-in-hand with infrastructure modernization initiatives.
For many organizations, modernization means deploying an infrastructure foundation that can easily respond to business needs as their applications and databases evolve. While older versions of Microsoft SQL Server were not originally designed to support data on the scale of petabytes, exabytes, or greater, SQL Server 2019 provides this support. SQL Server 2019 creates a unified data management platform enabling organizations to harness more data from more sources. It is designed for scale-out compute for data processing and as a result benefits from an infrastructure capable of delivering flexibility, scalability, and performance that is required for workloads. Organizations must continue to modernize their infrastructure foundation to be able to take advantage of the newest features and functionality of their mission critical database.
Hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) simplify deployments by integrating storage, compute, and networking, and include software-defined storage to provide greater scalability and resource efficiency.
Dell EMC PowerEdge vSAN Ready Nodes combine the flexibility and ease of HCI deployment in a validated, preconfigured environment. Companies can start small and grow resources as needed, demonstrating the advantages organizations can achieve by using Dell EMC PowerEdge vSAN Ready Nodes as the underlying infrastructure for SQL Server.
