For IT professionals responsible for servers, storage, networking, application, data management and the like, hyperconvergence (also known as hyperconverged infrastructure) is your answer to simplifying IT. Hyperconvergence can dramatically reduce infrastructure complexity using virtualisation as an enabling technology.
Hyperconvergence is a single vendor computing infrastructure for virtual workloads. Specifically, it’s one that seamlessly combines all of the IT components and services below the hypervisor into an x86 building block. Hyperconvergence means there are no silos of independent IT components/hardware. And, there’s no need to manage discrete devices or have specialised training in component-level technology, such as storage area networks (SANs), WAN optimisation or even backup systems.
