Years of operating with silos of infrastructure have left many IT departments on a refresh treadmill where the completion of one infrastructure refresh project is immediately followed by another, which is quickly followed by another. Such environments leave corporations highly vulnerable to datacenter outages and ultimately ill prepared for today’s rapidly changing competitive landscape. And while these are exactly the types of challenges that GlassFire focuses on eliminating, breaking this cycle with an engineered, multi-phased rollout approach.
Customers using GlassFire-engineered solutions are achieving operational and cost efficiencies, along with improved application performance, by moving existing workloads from legacy traditional three-tier datacenter infrastructures and placing new workloads on a hyperconverged infrastructure. GlassFire solutions also provide the agility and scalability needed to grow with the business needs. Instead of spending 65% of resources on operational tasks, organizations are spending 65% working on business. IT becomes a business enabler rather than a hindrance.
Organizations reduce and avoid datacenter-related capital and operating expenses because of the strong performance, scalability, and efficiencies with GlassFire engineered solutions. The cost and operational efficiencies, along with their high resiliency, mean that organizations running workloads in a GlassFire engineered solution have a substantially lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared with legacy or alternative infrastructure solutions. On average, these organizations will reduce their TCO by 58.3% over five years, with an average five-year ROI of 510% and a payback period of 7.5 months.
