Everything You Need to Know About Hyperconvergence
Hyperconvergence is one of the biggest data center trends of the year. You might have heard of hyperconverged systems but still not understand their function or their necessity. Well it’s time to get up to speed because these systems can be effective and efficient for virtualizing and managing your IT. Here, we’ll answer some of the most common questions you might have about this streamlined and cohesive option.
What is hyperconvergence?
Hyperconverged systems are a type of infrastructure that is software-focused and integrates storage, networking, and virtualization. In this system, all resources and technologies are stored in a single hardware box supported by a single vendor. One of the most common uses for a hyperconverged system is creating a virtual workspace for multiple employees.
In essence, its primary goal is to simplify. In most cases, a vendor creates a pre-made hardware and software bundle that’s held in a single box. This bundling ensures compatibility amongst programs that need to be used together, as well as making the programs easier to manage. In hyperconvergence, programs are so integrated they cannot be separated into many components. Additionally, if and when you’re looking to expand, nodes can be added to the original toolset if needed.
What are the benefits of hyperconvergence?
Hyperconverged systems offer many benefits such as unmatched scalability and helping to avoid expensive over-provisioning. Because hyperconverged systems are so efficient, they will also save you money and you can manage them more easily than with traditional infrastructures. Further, these systems can also deploy initiatives more quickly, shortening lag time, and, finally, in the face of unforeseen events, they offer exceptional data recovery and protection options.
How does the management of hyperconverged systems work?
Previously, each item had its own management console, often leading to snafus. Now, hyperconverged systems offer a greater degree of unification. IT teams or managed teams can monitor everything on a unified platform. In some cases, teams create a single console where they can manage all aspects of the IT infrastructure. In other instances, teams plug in to a hypervisor management interface that doesn’t require them to create their own interface from scratch.
