Crystal Group white paper highlights enterprise cloud's abilities in tactical environments

HIAWATHA, IA April 19, 2017 Crystal Group Inc., a leading designer/manufacturer of rugged computer hardware, has released a new white paper that shares insight on how branch military organizations and industries are utilizing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to better manage, provide access to, and protect valuable data collected in extreme tactical environments found in the field, at sea, in the air or in space.

The sheer amount of data being generated, shared, and stored is at an all-time high - and is continuously growing. Professionals in the office and in the field, are increasingly relying on information gleaned from these growing data sets to get the job done.

HCI consolidates multiple devices in a single cluster and adds advanced software to take advantage of the Internet of Things, the cloud, and resource virtualization. Ruggedized HCI systems tightly integrate enterprise cloud capabilities with high performance computing, networking, and storage hardware to deliver a compact, deployable data center.

The white paper, "Hyperconverged Infrastructure Brings Enterprise Cloud to Tactical Environments" presents insight into:

How ruggedized HCI systems can provide significant cost savings compared to the cost of acquiring and maintaining three separate systems – leading to speedier return on investment

How ruggedized HCI systems provide the benefits of large capacity, small SWaP, rapid deployment, scalability, continuity, and security

And how to select ruggedized HCI systems
