“By 2019, approximately 30% of the global storage array capacity installed in enterprise data centers will be deployed with SDS or Hyper-Converged integrated system architectures based on x86 hardware systems, up from less than 5% today” – Gartner
Data center requirements have evolved – has your infrastructure kept up? Today’s digital businesses require modern data centers that are agile, scalable, highly virtualized, software defined, and automated, to support today’s modern applications and business requirements. A major part of modernizing the data center is the modernization of the infrastructure itself.
A Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) will bridge the gap between modernized, efficient virtualization platforms and lagging storage performance by collapsing compute, storage and networking onto the server and virtualizing.
Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is a fundamental building block for the SDDC, because it enables the agility and speed that the SDDC requires—without exorbitant costs. HCI collapses compute, storage and management into software that runs on a unified platform that enables single location management and seamless integration of all workflows – delivering services that were previously provided via hardware through software.
Data center requirements have evolved. With HCI and Eastern Computer Exchange, your business can transition to a more modern infrastructure that lowers costs, simplifies operations, and increases agility.
Eastern has earned our strategic partner status with industry leaders Dell EMC and VMware. As a Dell EMC Titanium Partner and a VMware Premier Partner, Eastern’s Best in Breed technical talent has deployed numerous Best in Class Dell EMC and VMware solutions that have successfully modernized enterprise data centers around the world by architecting customizes end to end solutions to meet each customer’s business goals.
Benefits of HCI:
- Operational Simplicity
- Greater Agility
- Lower TCO
- Improved Performance
VMware Hyper Converged Solutions
VMware, an industry-leading software company, provides foundational components for HCI, converging compute, storage and management onto a single, integrated layer of software that can run on industry-standard hardware. VMware is the ONLY vendor who provides such a level of integration.
Dell EMC Converged and Hyper Converged Infrastructure
As a Dell EMC Titanium Partner, Eastern can architect and deliver converged and hyper converged infrastructure based on Vblock® Systems, VxBlock™, VxRack™ and VxRail™ product families. Eastern, combined with the Converged Platforms Division of Dell EMC®, deliver industry-leading converged and hyper converged infrastructure platforms to simplify the state of IT, modernize data centers and help transform your business. Converged Infrastructure (CI) solutions deliver business outcomes by bringing together virtualization, networking, compute, and storage to simplify data center operations and transform modern enterprise IT. And as we like to say, not all converged infrastructure solutions are created equal. Only Dell EMC’s CI is engineered, manufactured, maintained, supported and sustained as a single system. And only the Dell EMC CI portfolio offers convergence at data center scale to enable resource sharing and simplify operations.

Read the case study.
The Dell EMC Converged Infrastructure Solutions Deliver 3 Key Benefits for Our Customers:
- Faster installation with onsite deployment measured in hours as opposed to weeks.
- Simple on-going management – our customers tell us they spend upwards of 41% less time administering a CI system compared to the hours spent every day (and across multiple individuals) with maintaining a traditional approach.
- 96% less application downtime through the elimination of integration & validation errors.
These important benefits combine to translate into a lower TCO, and more time spent on innovation.
