Legacy infrastructure with its separate enterprise storage, networks, and servers is not well-suited to meet the growing demands of enterprise applications and fast-paced modern business.
IT leaders are now turning to hyper-converged infrastructure to knock down these silos, and deliver on-premise IT services with the speed and operational efficiency of the public cloud.
The Definitive Guide to Hyperconverged Infrastructure will equip you with hyper-convergence fundamentals and propel you to expert status on the inner-workings of Nutanix.
The growing demands of enterprise applications and the fast pace of modern business threaten to put legacy IT design — with separate storage, storage networks, and servers — at risk of failure. The silos created by traditional datacenter infrastructure often present barriers to change and progress, adding complexity to every step from ordering to deployment to management.
Hyper-converged infrastructure streamlines the deployment, management, and scaling of data center resources by combining x86-based server and storage resources with intelligent software in a turnkey software-defined solution. Separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays can be replaced with a single hyper-converged infrastructure solution to create an agile datacenter that easily scales with your business.
A Distributed Data Plane
that runs across a cluster of nodes delivering storage, virtualization and networking services for guest applications – either VMs or container-based applications.
A Management Plane
that allows for the easy administration of all HCI resources from a single view, and eliminates the need for separate management solutions for servers, storage networks, storage and virtualization.
