Hyper-Converged Infrastructure tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization technologies in a x86 server-based rack system or appliance allowing the component resources to be managed as a single system.
Who uses Hyper-Converged Infrastructure and why?
Hyper-Converged infrastructure is used in enterprise data centers, small and medium business, and remote and branch offices to quickly extend a virtual environment, simplify operations and support any new and growing workload requirement. HCI systems provide scale out solutions with predictable results and operational costs.
How Hyper-Converged Infrastructure works
Hyper-Converged infrastructure integrates compute and storage elements with virtualization software onto x86 servers. Resources are abstracted from underlying hardware and managed at the VM level.
Benefits of Hyper-Converged Infrastructure
Hyper-Converged infrastructure allows organizations to:
