What is hyperconvergence?

Hyperconverged Systems and Hyperconverged Infrastructure are types of infrastructure systems with a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources in a commodity hardware box supported by a single vendor.

Hyperconverged is all the buzz right now, and is one of  the largest growth areas in the modern Data Center. Traditional data center vendors (HPE, Cisco, Dell/EMC, etc.) want a piece of the pie and there are many disrupters (Nutanix, Simplivity, Pivot3m etc.) in this space. If you believe the hype, everyone is moving to hyperconverged and you are missing out if you are not considering them for your organization. Constant pressure on IT Departments to provision resources instantly while dealing with reduced staffing and budgets means everyone is looking for a simple solution. Is hyperconvergence the answer to your IT problems?

Why do you need hyperconverged?

Efficient, agile, flexible, and integrated, these systems allow for easy scale-out storage, cost-savings, and simplicity to manage your systems. To find out if hyperconverged is the best solution for your Data Center, consider the following.
