Hyperconvergence is the next natural step in the evolution of the data center. Complex IT infrastructures are shifting away from familiar hardware-defined systems toward the new software-defined reality.
According to IDC, “hyperconverged infrastructure essentially collapses core storage, computing, and networking functions into a single software solution or appliance. Hence it is simply a more tightly integrated converged system with compute, storage, and networks decoupled from the underlying infrastructure and defined/ configured at a software level.”
There is more than one way to deliver a hyperconverged solution: as a hardware-software appliance in a pre-defined configuration, or as a flexible solution based on a purely software-defined architecture. In either case, the principal characteristic common to either approach is that expensive, monolithic storage frames and the physical SAN are both eliminated.
Nutanix commands a 52% share of the hyperconverged market, making it the undisputed leader in hyperconvergence with a record of continuous innovation. Much like Lenovo, Nutanix has an ambitious vision of transforming how enterprise data centers are designed, managed, and scaled with consumer-grade ease of use.
