Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is becoming a pivotal architecture for organisations of all sizes due to the simplicity, ease of management, and cost savings that it offers over traditional data centre architectures. Among the biggest benefits that HCI brings include agility, scalability, more efficient resource consumption and since it is software-defined, it can be managed centrally by a single piece of software.
In the age of the cloud, businesses are struggling to connect legacy systems with cloud applications. That, and because of the aforementioned benefits, HCI has emerged as a key enabler for cloud adoption, providing a quick and simple way for organisations to connect to public and private clouds while offering its own cloud-like properties. It allows organisations to manage complex IT infrastructures seamlessly by delivering storage, compute, network, virtualisation and data protection in an easy to manage but scalable application.
