Hyper Converged Infrastructure
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) combines common datacenter hardware using locally attached storage resource with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. Benefits include lower TCO, increased performance and greater productivity within IT teams.
How does it work?
HCI converges the entire datacenter stack, including compute, storage, storage networking and virtualization. Complex and expensive legacy infrastructure is replaced by a platform running on turnkey, industry-standard servers that enable enterprises to start small and scale one node at a time. Software running on each server node distributes all operating functions across the cluster for superior performance and resilience.
Linview is unique in that it is well-suited for I/O intensive workloads such as Databases, machine learning, and messaging; and it can run in either a Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), and Disaggregated Storage mode.
Hyper Converged Infrastructure Benefits
To take advantage of hyper-converged infrastructure benefits, such as reduced storage costs and better performance, a virtual infrastructure workload is a good bet. Hyper-convergence can also create a self-contained environment, ideal for testing and development.
