Hyper-converged infrastructure is a software-defined system with tightly-integrated compute, storage, networking, and virtualization resources served in a single “out-of-the-box” solution. This eliminates discrete expansion or maintenance of different infrastructure components in a data centre and as well as reduced equipment footprint, rack, power, and cooling costs.
Eliminates infrastructure silos and reliance on discrete components.
Assured configurations that do not present incompatibility issues within the system in future upgrades and patches.
Single-pane of management for compute, storage, network, and virtual environments.
Quick deployment time and a single point of contact for support.
Reduces server footprint, rack rental costs, power and cooling costs.
Scales easily according to business needs by adding nodes.
Potential CapEx and OpEx cost savings resulting from a streamlined approach to acquisition, deployment, management and support costs from a single vendor.
Other advanced features include data deduplication, compression, and WAN optimization.
