Combine. Streamline. Converge.
Hyperconvergence means more than merging storage and compute into a single solution. Multiple infrastructure components are integrated into a compact, efficient platform that is simple enough to be managed without specialised training. The more components in a hyperconverged node, the less you have to manage. When the entire IT stack is combined into a software-defined platform, you can accomplish complex tasks in minutes instead of hours. Hyperconvergence gives you the agility and economics of cloud with the enterprise capabilities of on-premises infrastructure.
Take control with hyperconverged infrastructure
See the top eight reasons customers choose SimpliVity as an award-winning, high-performance solution for consolidating IT infrastructure, protecting data and simplifying remote office IT.
Scale VDI resources and minimise user downtime
HCI’s dedupe and compression capabilities enable you to store more VMs, while data protection and replication get users back up and running faster with persistent desktops.
Protect and recover data
With a distributed model that replicates data across multiple nodes, HCI’s built-in redundancy minimises the impact of a lost node on your operations and simplifies disaster recovery.
Centralise IT for ROBO operations
Multiple sites running disparate platforms equals a genuine hassle for IT. A common hyperconverged infrastructure brings order to administration, support, deployment and data protection.

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is fast, simple and efficient - and a good fit for VDI Infographic
To support a business technology agenda, infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals must factor critical aspects of their own environments into their decisions and understand how these requirements affect implicit and explicit weighting as they evaluate hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) offerings. This report covers the major variations in workloads and data services that can make an impact on your selection and outlines a methodology for evaluating the true cost of these solutions.
What is hyperconvergence?
Metrics that matter when evaluating hyperconverged infrastructure
An emerging data centre architectural option, dubbed hyperconverged infrastructure, is a new way to reduce your costs and better align enterprise IT with business needs. At its most basic, hyperconverged infrastructure is the conglomeration of the servers and storage devices that comprise the data centre. These systems are wrapped in comprehensive and easy-to-use management tools designed to help shield the administrator from much of the underlying architectural complexity.
