The improvements in software and the increase in the use of virtualization led to more flexible and cheaper solutions. The features that came to life with Blade servers offered solutions with converged infrastructures and led to the creation of hyper-converged infrastructures.
Briefly, the features converged infrastructure solutions provide are; gathering server, storage unit and network devices based on a reference architecture from the manufacturer in a virtual environment, easy setup, management and support, advanced recovery and business continuity. Converged infrastructure solutions can start working in a few hours after they arrive because they are already set up at the factory.
Hyper-converged infrastructure provide transaction power, storage and network solutions in a traditional server on the virtual environment under the manufacturer reference architecture. This way, they can maintain high performance, advanced recovery and business continuity at a very low cost. Hyper-converged infrastructure solutions can start working in a few hours after they arrive because they are already set up at the factory.
