What is hyper-convergence?
Hyper-converged infrastructure is a way of keeping performance, reliability and availability that you would expect in your own datacentre while embracing cloud principles and economics. By consolidating your server compute, storage, networking, hypervisor, data efficiency, global management and other functionality on x86 architecture, you will be able to simplify your IT, improve data protection, ease of scaling out/in resources, VM centred, increase data efficiency, better application or workload mobility, high availability and can lessen long term IT expenditure.
How is Hyper-converged different to Converged Infrastructure?
Similarly to Hyper-convergence, Convergence aimed to make complex data centres simpler. By bringing storage, compute and networking into a single solution Converged solutions aimed to create a one box solution for the data centre. Where hyper-convergence differs is a complete new way of thinking of what the building blocks of a data centre should be. The purpose of the hyper-converged infrastructure is to fully support and focus on the virtual machine. A hyper-converged solution is a pre-packaged hardware and software solution that uses fewer resources.
Features and benefits
- Is a true software defined data centre solution. This means that you will not need to change infrastructure components or replace hardware. Allows you the flexibility needed to use your hardware at its full capability.
- Allows you to use your enterprise IT in a cloud like economic model. This is good as it lowers your total cost of ownership and improves performance, availability, reliability of your data centre.
- Combines flash and spinning disk, solving performance issues while catering for larger capacities required.
- If something goes wrong, there is only a single point of contact for the entire solution.
- All the components and their management is centralized. This makes it easier to manage from one interface.
- Able to move workloads quickly when necessary. Consistent deduplication is a core part of its offering meaning that you can get things done much faster.
- Building block approach which allows IT to expand by adding units. Upgrades cost much less compared with integrated systems products. This lowers the upfront costs when you need to get to the next level of infrastructure.
- Automation is easy as the solution is software defined.
- Resources can be shared. You can deploy many different applications in a single shared resource pool without compromising VM performance.
- Backup, recovery and disaster recovery are built in. This means that you will not need third party integration.
