Converged and hyperconvereged

Dynamic responses to business needs

Simplify and accelerate your IT transformation with integrated storage, compute, and networking. By eliminating traditional IT silos, Converged Infrastructure (CI) and Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) lay the groundwork for a more agile, responsive, and energized IT architecture that the business can ride into the next era.

Converge on a modern advantage

Most businesses want to simplify, modernize, and ultimately transform IT. Converged solutions help IT leaders deliver these kinds of operational improvements, making them massively useful and increasingly popular.

However, there are differences between CI and HCI, and more granular dissimilarities across vendor offerings, that are critical to understand. We work with you to illuminate key attributes and identify best-fit solutions.

Features and benefits:
 

Converged infrastructure:

  • Leverages preconfigured hardware
  • Uses validated designs and architecture
  • Reduces footprint and improves utilization
  • Decreases capital spending
  • Can be coupled with flash storage

Hyperconverged infrastructure:

  • Is software-defined
  • Offers common interface management
  • Increases resiliency and availability
  • Scales from several nodes to large clusters
  • Deduplicates and compresses inline
