How Converged (CI) and Hyper-converged (HCI) infrastructures can simplify your data center


The Converged Infrastructure (CI) revolutionizes the data center by packaging all the components of a traditional 3-tier architecture together; server, storage, and network. This simplifies design, installation and management and greatly reduces the time previously required for data center projects. 


Hyper-converged Infrastructures (HCIs) have additional benefits compared to CIs. Instead of being hardware based and relying on building blocks, HCIs are software based, incorporate an additional virtualization layer, and scale in small nodes which include server, storage, and networking components, all in one chassis. The HCI software unifies the system and makes it simple to assign compute, memory and storage resources per virtual machine based on the needs of your application. This is a simpler and more flexible way for organizations to scale and support their data center infrastructures.  

Depending on your selected vendor, you may simply add HCI software to the hardware of your choice, or you could a single vendor solution and deploy it all at once opting for hardware already configured and optimized with the HCI software.
