10 Things That Hyperconvergence Offers


1. Software Focus

Because of the software-based nature of Hyperconvergence you don’t have to replace infrastructure components to meet current and future business needs. Features and are rolled out immediately in new software releases giving customers instant benefits without having to replace hardware.

2. Use of Commodity Hardware

Businesses can take advantage of the lower costs of commodity hardware. The software layer is designed on the notion that the hardware will ultimately fail making the benefit of these failure avoidance/availability options possible but more affordable.

3. Centralized Systems and Management

Compute, storage, backup to disk, cloud gateway functionality, etc, are all combined in a single shared resource pool with hypervisor technology. This enables IT to aggregate resources across an individual note and manage a single federated system.

Centralization and integration also happen at the management level. No matter how widespread the physical resources are, hyper convergence systems treat them as if they were right next to one another. Resources across multiple physical data centers can be managed from a centralized interface along with all system and data management functions as well.

4. Enhanced Agility

Hyperconvergence technology has allowed all resources in a physical data center to reside under one administrative umbrella making workload migration far easier compared to a legacy system. Especially for solutions that offer deduplication as a core feature. The reduced data is far easier to handle vs the fully expanded data moving things along far faster.

5. Scalability and Efficiency

Hyperconvergence is designed to scale in a building-block approach. Very much like a lego set, you can expand by adding individual units. This granular scalability gives businesses the ability to make smaller incremental investments in infrastructure.

6. Low Cost

Hyperconverged systems are also require less of an initial investment due to a lower cost of entry compared to integrated systems and legacy infrastructure.

7. Easy Automation

Once you have all of your resources and management tools combined in one place, there are opportunities for scheduled and scripted tasks within the administrative functionality.

8. Focus on VM’s

Virtual machines are used as the base construct of Hyperconverged environments and all other resources like storage, backup, replication, load balancing, etc, all support individual VM’s. This creates a scenario where the policy and all of the management options are controlled at the VM level.

9. Shared Resources

Hyperconvergence give businesses the ability to deploy many different applications in a single shared resource pool without causing performance issues. This is possible because of the mix of storage options enabling systems to handle both random and sequential workloads.

10. Data Protection

There are clear benefits to Hyperconvergence when it comes to back up and recovery.

– Comprehensive backup and recovery is more affordable

– Efficient protection without data rehydration and re-duplication – and the inefficient use of resources that result

– A single centralized console that enables IT to respond quickly.
