SlideShare – Showdown: Hardware-Based Hyperconvergence vs. Hyperconvergence Software

Hyperconverged architectures come in two flavors; hardware-based hyperconvergence or hyperconvergence software. Hardware-based hyperconvergence is where the hardware and the software are licensed together and pre-integrated from a single vendor. Hardware-based solutions look appealing on the surface – just plug them

The Hidden Cost of Hardware Hyperconvergence

Hardware hyperconvergence is supposed to make the life of the IT professional easier by bundling compute, networking, hypervisor and storage software into a single bundle. To a large extent hardware hyperconvergence lives up to the hype, at least initially. But

Software Defined Storage vs. Hyperconvergence

Hyperconvergence makes a lot of sense for many organizations. Hyperconvergence lets data centers leverage the excess compute in their virtual infrastructure to run the hyperconverged solution. The goal is to create a simpler architecture that converges compute, storage and networking.

Is Hardware-Based Hyperconvergence Easier to Implement?

Implementation of hyperconverged systems requires the installation of two components. First is the hardware, made up of servers and the networking that connects them. Second is the software, made up of the hypervisor that creates a cluster and storage software

The State of Hyperconvergence

Hyperconvergence was supposed to be nirvana for the data center. Converge compute, storage and networking into a single box and all data center problems go away. The problem is that didn’t happen. Hyperconvergence is the ultimate white board technology: It

Which Type of Hyperconverged System is Right For Your Data Center?

Hyperconverged solutions come in two forms. The first is a hardware defined model where the hyperconverged software and server hardware are bundled together and sold as a turnkey system. The second is a software only system, where IT uses the
