Bigger is not always better and hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is the perfect example. This small, combined hardware-software unit delivers first-rate storage, computing and network performance without wasting space or energy. The system is managed by virtualisation software, which is also behind the high degree of convergence.
Hyper-converged systems are optimised for specific workloads, propelling their performance much higher than standard hardware and thereby making them ideal for specific, dedicated scenarios.

Managing an IT environment is both time and cost-intensive as any new developments often require extensive network changes. A hyper-converged infrastructure, however, is controlled by virtualisation software, thereby substantially simplifying this task. These infrastructures are also optimised for easy implementation, horizontal scalability and energy-efficiency. As a result, your energy costs sink and managing your infrastructure is longer be the headache it used to be.
Efficient IT management requires a reliable, transparent and unified data-centre architecture. Hyper-converged infrastructure offers just that, and you can even combine it with your existing traditional IT. If you prefer, we’ll operate your hyper-converged infrastructure for you as a managed service.
Hyper-converged systems take virtual systems and simplify them even more. All components are designed to work together in perfect synchronisation and they’re managed through a single console. That means you won’t have to rack your brain working through complex design, configuration and implementation questions.
In addition, by packing server, storage and network components into a small footprint, you’ll save on cabling, power and cooling.
And expanding your capacity is a breeze—simply add one or more HCI systems into your rack for an efficient response to future data growth and rising performance requirements.
Best of all, hyper-converged solutions are based on cutting-edge hardware and support a broad range of applications, so you’ll be ideally prepared to respond to the dynamic needs of your data centre.
