SMBs Reap the Rewards of SDDCs

The SMB market opportunity is huge.

Currently, SMBs represent 44% of the total IT spend worldwide, a figure that Gartner predicts will cross the trillion dollar mark by 2015.

That's some serious cash -- yet a market that  traditional storage and virtualization players have practically ignored. Just because these businesses don’t have 10,000 employees, doesn’t mean they don’t have sizable data center needs. In fact, the data centers in these organizations rival what many large enterprises had just a few years ago.

That's where we come in. The NIMBOXX data–center–in–a–box is exactly what these businesses are looking for to ease the pain of going virtual using more costly, fragmented, proprietary solutions that have dominated the market until now.

Today we're proud to announce that another innovative company has taken the step toward the software-defined data center, using NIMBOXX. Professional Civil Process (PCP), a leading Texas process server and trusted partner to the legal community for more than 35 years, has deployed the NIMBOXX hyper-converged infrastructure technology to virtualize PCP’s data center.

They selected NIMBOXX for its high performance, ease of use and teams that's "a pleasure to work with", not to mention, ". . . icing on the cake that we won’t spend a dime on hypervisors from VMware or Microsoft.” For more info, read the press release here.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
