What is Hyperconvergence?

Hyperconvergence allows IT operations to be simplified by breaking down traditional silos and allowing storage, compute, networking, and virtualisation to be managed with the same hardware.

Hyperconvergence definition

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.
