A hyper-converged infrastructure consists of 5 components that are all tested and pre-installed prior to deployment these are:
Hyper-convergence is designed to deliver storage, computing and networking in a ready to run solution out of the box that can reduce data centre complexity and increase scalability. Hyper-converged platforms include a hypervisor for virtualisation computing, software-defined storage, and virtualised networking.
Firstly these solutions are completely validated and supported solutions by the software and hardware vendors designed to inter-operate. A single SKU is the norm and support is carried out by one vendor, cutting down on admin and maintenance costs. A hyper-converged infrastructure is also designed to scale for both capacity and performance as well providing unrivalled reliability and up-time using multiple redundant components. By buying a pre-configured solution that is designed to be more flexible, simpler to manage and reduce time-frames to deployment, therefore all the work putting individual components together and testing is already done.
For IT leaders who are embarking on data centre modernisation projects, hyper-converged infrastructure can provide the agility of public cloud infrastructure without relinquishing control and the ability to move to a private cloud infrastructure when the time is right.
