Hyperconverged – What is it, What it can do and How the Enterprise is using it

Presented by

Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst, Evaluator Group

About this talk

Hyperconverged infrastructures combine compute and storage components into a modular, scale-out platform that typically includes a hypervisor and some comprehensive management software. The technology is usually sold as self-contained appliance modules running on industry-standard server hardware with internal HDDs and SSDs. This capacity is abstracted and pooled into a shared resource for VMs running on each module or ‘node’ in the cluster. Hyperconverged infrastructures are sold as stand-alone appliances or as software that companies or integrators can use to build their own compute environments for private or hybrid clouds, special project infrastructures or departmental/remote office IT systems. Learning Objectives Understand what hyperconvergence is – and is not Understand the capabilities this technology can bring Discussion of where this technology is going How and where it is being used in the Enterprise
