MR2 Solutions partners up with only the latest and greatest technology manufacturers up to date. With hyper converged technology on the rise and simplified IT architecture a necessity, it's crucial that MR2 Solutions provides relevant and updated information about the trends today. This is why we deeply believe in and trust our market leading manufacturer - SimpliVity. SimpliVity's mission is to increase management, storage, transfers, and protection with a simplified technology to lower cost and complexity. As volumes continue to grow in every business, (no matter what industry) IT infrastructures that aren't virtualized begin to feel the IT challenges that are brought on by lack of human resources, management and disparate IT infrastructure hardware. Generally, Total Cost Ownership (TCO) is the sum total of costs of the solution being purchased and operated over 3 years, including CAPEX and OPEX cost. SimpliVity's OmniCube platform revolutionizes the IT infrastructure with the new and unproven infrastructure stack. Data centers that are looking to virturalize their environment or build a cloud infrastructure look to SimpliVity's solution because they provide a simplified and more cost-effective approach with their one platform/ one screen system. Running on a common hardware so same core components can be deployed at multiple levels of infrastructure, the system also includes VM application hosting in primary data centers, local backup infrastructure, remote DR infrastructure and remote/ branch offices. Public cloud integration and converged, 2U storage/ server appliance designed for virtual environments are just a few things you would expect from a highly intelligent machine. 

Therefore, IT departments that use SimipliVity's hyperconverged technology would see the that the atomic IT building block of the Omnicube reduces the TCO of IT infrastructure by 3 times or more. Powered by a novel data architecture, and pending over 10 patents, OmniCube combines the functionality of up to 12 different products, in a single unified stack, including servers, primary storage systems, storage switches, backup deduplication appliances, WAN optimization devices, SSD appliances, data protection applications, and cloud gateway appliances. By consolidating into one single appliance, they were able to eliminate many of the components that made the previous environment complex and expensive. In a CAPEX cost point of view, this innovative technology replaces the need for many disparate devices: backup and DR devices, WAN bandwidth, separate flash caches and flash arrays. In an OPEX cost perspective, hyperconvergence enables significant labor, maintenance, bandwidth and general data center management cost savings.
