Hyper-Converged Infrastructure


Hyper-Converged Infrastructure

Hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) allows the convergence of physical storage onto industry-standard x86 servers, enabling a building block approach with scale-out capabilities. All key data center functions run as software on the hypervisor in a tightly integrated software layer – delivering services that were previously provided via hardware through software

HCI powered by vSAN consists of:

  • vSphere: our industry-leading virtualization platform that provides server virtualization

  • vSAN: the only vSphere-embedded storage solution that delivers flash-optimized, high-performance, hyper-converged storage for virtual machines

  • vCenter Server: the unified and extensible management solution for vSphere environments
