Frequently Asked Questions

Hyperconverged infrastructure combines compute, storage, and virtualization to create a simple, easy-to-deploy, scale-out software-defined storage solution for enterprises and service providers.

The simplicity of management, provisioning, and maintenance, along with lower initial entry cost and dynamic expansion, are the key benefits of HCI. HCI systems lend themselves to software optimization of the hardware, which will reduce CAPEX and drive greater value on each unit of investment. Customers can now realign IT resources more on innovation and strategic business value and less on keeping the lights on. Hyperconverged infrastructure increases operational flexibility and reduces cost. The simplicity of deployment, ongoing operation, ease of management, and maintenance will reduce planned downtime and enhance productivity.

HCI Solutions are ideal for general purpose virtual servers, databases, cloud deployment, VDI, Test/Dev, big data, ROBO, and containerized workloads. Additionally, HCI systems are a good fit for Service Providers. In this environment, the smaller building block and linear scale-out lends itself to easier cost projections as service providers ramp and refresh their subscribers and business.

HCI can be purchased as an integrated appliance or just as software and deployed on commodity nodes. Both approaches have pros and cons to suit varying IT needs. While integrated appliance provides pre-integration, optimization, and single support, HCI nodes allow you to pick the best of breed hardware and HCI software.

HCI cluster eliminates single-point-of-failure from truly distributed storage deployment model. It is designed to ensure business continuity in the event of a machine or human error. It provides protection against host, VM, rack, or even site failure. Native and optimized data protection and business continuity solutions are available to meet the aggressive uptime requirement of business applications.
