HCI SECURITY SHOULD FACTOR INTO HCI PRODUCT EVALUATIONS
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has been increasingly adopted in enterprise data centers. This is something we’ve seen in our interactions with IT clients and have confirmed by survey results this past year, and, in fact, every year we’ve conducted it. Enterprise IT organizations have certain expectations of infrastructure products they use. As HCI crosses the threshold into the enterprise and mainstream data centers, it needs to meet the expectations of enterprise IT organizations. One of those areas is security.  “Enterprise” infrastructure products have “enterprise” feature sets – and that includes integration or compatibility with the security protocols and platforms that these organizations currently rely on. In some ways, HCI can intrinsically provide a more secure environment than traditional infrastructure (servers and storage systems) based on its footprint but may present a less secure environment, based on operational characteristics and architecture. Physical consolidation can improve security because, as a large university IT director put it, you don’t have a server under someone’s desk. READ MORE
