Hyperconverged Infrastructure

What is Hyperconverged Infrastructure?

Combine compute, storage, and networking into a single system with hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). This simplified solution uses software and x86 servers to replace purpose-built hardware so that you can simplify operations, reduce TCO, and rapidly scale.

Three-tier architecture is expensive to build, complex to operate, and difficult to scale. Don't wait for IT infrastructure to support your application demands. Adopt HCI without losing control, increasing costs, or compromising security.

How Does Hyperconverged Infrastructure Work?

  • All critical data center functions run on a tightly integrated software layer, instead of purpose-built hardware.
  • The three components of a software-defined hyperconverged platform are: compute virtualization, storage virtualization, and unified management.
  • Virtualization software abstracts and pools the underlying resources, then dynamically allocates them to VMs or containers.
  • Configuration based on policies aligned with applications eliminates the need for complicated constructs like LUNs and volumes.
  • Advanced management features further reduce manual tasks and help automate entire operations.
