What is hyper-converged infrastructure?
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) combines common datacenter hardware using locally attached storage resources with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. Benefits include lower TCO, increased performance, and greater productivity within IT teams.
HCI converges the entire datacenter stack, including compute, storage, storage networking, and virtualization. Complex and expensive legacy infrastructure is replaced by a platform running on turnkey, industry-standard servers that enable enterprises to start small and scale one node at a time. Software running on each server node distributes all operating functions across the cluster for superior performance and resilience
The benefits of moving from complex legacy infrastructure to the simplicity of hyperconvergence are many, but among the top reasons organizations make the switch are lower costs, improved, consistent performance, a smaller datacenter footprint, greater efficiency and productivity in IT teams

How does a composable infrastructure work?
We provide composable infrastructure solutions to provide the flexibility and agility a datacentre needs for data-intensive computing. A composable infrastructure also supports I.T.’s move to become more flexible and increase the speed of deployments through DevOps and be more dynamic with Kubernetes and containers.
The I.T. department needs to become more flexible and agile with available resources and storage infrastructures are moving away from static, fixed resources to become an elastic cloud, orchestrated by, you guessed it, composable infrastructure.
How a business benefits using a Composable Infrastructure
Composable infrastructure doesn’t require a forklift upgrade.
Composable Infrastructure can be easily added to a current cluster and used for the expansion of that cluster. It’s a seamless way to get started and to see cost-savings from day one.
As the business asks for more digitization and more analytics workloads, you’ll be able to meet the requests without overrunning your budget.
Deploying applications in a composable datacentre will make it easier for IT to meet the needs of the business, while increasing speed to deployment and lowering infrastructure costs.
Efficient and seamlessly scalable operations will enable IT to respond quickly to the need for data-driven companies to reap the benefits of big data analytics, machine learning and IoT.
Once you experience the power and control provided by Composable Infrastructure, your static infrastructure will leave you feeling trapped in the past.
