Our ever-changing marketplace has been forcing organizations to adapt constantly to ensure that they stay competitive, this is more prevalent in an organizations IT. This has brought them to the public cloud to try and increase their business agility while at the same time lowering their costs, but due to data governance, risk mitigation and cost, many organizations found they are still in need of their private cloud, meaning they need multiple clouds to ensure business operations are being efficient.
Hybrid cloud, a multi-cloud operational model, is the next phase of IT evolution which organizations are evaluating as their solution to help them solve challenges of integrating multiple clouds. VMware’s vSAN offers organizations the logical next step to their hybrid cloud journey, below are some of the key benefits (info-graphics) when using vSAN in your organization:
It is natively integrated
vSphere integrated HCI simplifies architecture, enhances security and maximizes performance
It has a lower CAPEX cost
Experience the benefits of HCI with the lowest dollar per IOPS
It is operationally simpler
Roll out infrastructure and applications with ease and limited training
It is SDDC and Cloud Ready
Futureproof HCI with the widest deployment options – even public cloud

On June 29, 2018, CT Link officially signed up to become a VMware enterprise partner. VMware’s core business focuses on support to modernize data centers, integrating public cloud, empowering digital workspaces and transforming security for its clients. These focuses have helped VMware become one of the leading figures in the virtualization software market and a main reason why CT Link Systems, Inc. has decided to be an official partner focusing on products such as vSphere and vSAN.
VMware vSphere virtualizes and aggregates the underlying physical hardware resources across multiple systems and provides pools of virtual resources to the datacenter. As a cloud operating system, VMware vSphere manages large collections of infrastructure (such as CPUs, storage, and networking) as a seamless and dynamic operating environment, and also manages the complexity of a datacenter.
VMware vSAN on the other hand, is a hyper-converged, software-defined storage (SDS) product that pools together direct-attached storage devices (storage that is used individually and not accessible to others) across a VMware vSphere cluster to create a distributed, shared data store.
For those who are interested in learning more about VMware we will be releasing a more in-depth article on the vSphere and vSAN soon! If you wish to learn more about it now, you can contact us at 893-9515 and we will be happy to answer your inquires!
