2It Is a Single-Vendor Solution
3It Has a Single Shared Pool of x86 Resources
4It Has Scalability, Scalability, Scalability
5It Has Centralized Management
A truly hyperconverged infrastructure centrally manages aggregate resources and virtual machines within and across data centers via a single interface. This streamlines multisite management, minimizes training and creates OpEx savings. When it’s all in one place, actions can be taken much faster and decisions made more efficiently.
6It Has Hyperefficient Use of Resources
In a hyperconverged system, data center components are not idle resources, contributing to a reduction in discrete infrastructure components and capital costs. An HC system deduplicates, compresses and optimizes data before it’s written to a disk to reduce capacity, bandwidth and IOPS requirements, thereby reducing the cost per gigabyte of storage per VM. This lowers bandwidth costs and ensures that IOPS are available to fuel application requirements. It also offloads processing from Intel processors to ensure that CPUs serve business applications correctly.
7It Is Virtual Machine-Centric
8It Has Native Data Protection
9It Has a Software-Centric Design
Its software-centric design meets software-defined data center requirements, enabling automation and on-demand deployment in order to improve operational efficiency.
