Advantages of Hyper-Converged Infrastructure

November 18, 2019  Like By 0 Comments

HCI simplifies management, consolidates resources and reduces costs by combining compute, storage and networking into a single system. 


  1. Is Flexible: Scalability is simplified due to the node-based architecture. Simply add or remove nodes as the demand requires. The software storage solution makes scalability very easy. HCI offers virtualisation as it allows an organisation to store data on premise, in a remote location or in the cloud. Storage consumption becomes intelligent and agile across all platforms. It ensures no storage is wasted and the optimum usage of storage capacity is achieved.
  2. Is Efficient: Organisations can do a lot more with a lot less- capex and opex spending is easily reduced by 20%. With less equipment to purchase, maintain and support, it’s an affordable economic model to any IT department. HCI also offers a 90% capacity savings across storage and backup compared to traditional solutions.
  3. Is Simple: HCI requires only 3 clicks to backup, restore, move or clone a virtual machine, all from a single console. It simplifies the management of resources and helps simplify deployment at locations without local IT teams. 
  4. Is Secure: HCI gives organisations the ability to easily restore data as it embeds elements of disaster recovery and backups into the infrastructure thereby helping with data protection.It takes less than a minute to complete a local backup. Hyperconverged systems can be added or replaced without and downtime, disruption or reconfiguration. 

Hyper-converged Infrastructure is a cost-effective solution that can keep an organisation flexible enough to compete despite constant changes in technology. It aligns IT infrastructure with broader business sentiments such as agility and ROI. With 5G, edge computing and the influx of IoT, traditional converged infrastructure is outdated and HCI seems to be the logical approach. 

Servnet is vendor agnostic, we believe it’s important to discuss the intricate IT needs of your organisation so that we can help plan and map the transition to a hyper-converged infrastructure that works for your business.
