As a greenfield deployment, HCI is much more amenable to software-defined data center (SDDC) constructs than legacy hardware. In fact, most HCI deployments to date are being purpose-built around highly abstract data ecosystems.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) represents one of the most significant shifts in data center hardware since the rack server (mostly) displaced the mainframe. Relying on integrated compute-storage-networking modules and offering rapid scalability, HCI has the potential to dramatically alter the IT landscape over the next decade. But while HCI is certainly innovative in design, its true measure lies in the practical benefits it brings to data center management and operations. Here then are 10 ways in which the enterprise stands to benefit from HCI.
