IT is asked to do more, faster and at lower costs. They require new ways to rapidly deliver business applications and IT services, while driving down the overall TCO. Buying, deploying, managing and scaling datacenter infrastructure is expensive and time consuming. Legacy infrastructure built with seperate servers, storage and networking creates inflexible silos of specialised IT skills.
Hyper-converged infrastructure natively integrates compute and storage into a single x86-based server deployed in scale-out clusters. It reduces the power and space, and dramatically eliminates storage complexity. Hyper-converged solutions are uniquely built using web-scale technologies and architectures that originated in large Internet and Cloud companies such as Google, Facebook and Amazon.
