What is Hyperconvergence?
Hyperconvergence, like convergence, eliminates traditional IT management issues by packaging data centre services such as server, storage and network and allowing them to be managed in a single application. But unlike convergence, hyperconvergence is a software-defined infrastructure that decouples infrastructure operations from the system hardware and converges them at the hypervisor level into a single building block (thus hyper converged). Hyperconverged systems leverage software-defined intelligence to break down the silos of storage and compute, and allow them to run and be managed on the same server platform, which eliminates inefficiencies and accelerates compute.
Hyperconverged systems let you seamlessly manage a complex infrastructure, accelerate virtualised workloads, reduce complexity, improve operational efficiency and reduce cost. Hyperconvergence offers the reliability, availability, performance and capacity needed – while future proofing IT infrastructure and lowering total cost of ownership (TCO). Generally, a hyperconverged infrastructure:
- Enables centralised management of virtual environments via a single interface, which decreases labor-intensive activities
- Offers streamlined acquisition, deployment, support and management
- Provides a scalable, building-block approach that is easily expandable
