IT solutions distributor MSI-ECS Phils. Inc. recently announced its partnership with SimpliVity to distribute the company’s leading hyperconverged infrastructure platform.

Hyperconvergence is the fastest growing segment of the convergence IT category. While convergence brings simplicity to increasingly complex data centers, hyperconvergence enables cloud-like economics and scale without compromising the performance, reliability, and availability enterprises require in their data center.

The Philippines is known to have slow Internet speeds, where customers have expensive and fixed broadband pricing. SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure allows companies to maximize their bandwidth. Data is deduplicated, compressed, and optimized before it’s stored or moved over the network, reducing the bandwidth required to support core backup and disaster recovery functions as well as remote office/branch office data synchronization.

SimpliVity’s unique hyperconverged platform significantly reduces the cost of IT infrastructure by assimilating all data center functions, including servers, storage, WAN optimization, data protection, cloud gateway, and more, into a single 2U building block.

According to analysts, the high-cost of electricity supplies in Philippines are a major issue when considering legacy IT investments. However, by simplifying the infrastructure, major reductions in power are possible. The overall reduction translates into a huge total cost of ownership savings of 3x for the small and medium enterprise as well as the large enterprise markets.

“The benefits of hyperconvergence are just amazing—a game-changer in IT infrastructure. We are confident that local companies will positively embrace this technology, especially when you highlight SimpliVity’s high impact on capital and operational expenditures,” says Jimmy Go, president and CEO, MSI-ECS.
