HYPERCONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE

HYPERCONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE

Jan 10, 2022


Enterprises are now running behind Infrastructure setup, which is comprised of Hardware, Software, network resources, services for the smooth functioning of IT operations and management. Why you should know what is Hyper-converged Infrastructure? What are the advantages of using HCI as your infrastructure management? 

Yes, as the name implies it is the complete IT framework that combines computing, storage, network, the software completely into a single system which will result in minimal data center complexity. This can increase the scalability too. 

A software-centric design closely combines and virtualizes all of the resources in a single system, which is often based on x86 technology. This is designed to get high power performance, minimize cost, minimize rack spacing. This removes the need for external SAN. 

A hyper-converged system can be acquired as standalone software that can be deployed on your existing x86 servers or as a fully integrated appliance solution from a single vendor. Both choices (hyper-converged appliance and standalone software) can offer a comprehensive set of features and advantages. Costs, advantages, and deployment options are the primary distinctions. 

As a result, migrating to hyper-converged systems has more benefits than sticking with a standard SAN—not only is it easier to scale up with HCI but data can also be shared across numerous nodes for more redundancy. You can have two or three replicas of the same data delivered in some instances. However, having more data replicas will limit the overall amount of usable space in your hyper-converged cluster.
