AI Drives The Next Evolution of Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Enterprises are paying attention to the role of intelligent self-management

Published October 2020


The benefits of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) are by now well-known. HCI makes it simpler and easier to manage virtual desktops, apps and data remotely. It’s flexible and efficient, offering the ability to add more compute and storage as needed, just by adding a node. Enterprises are saving on power, space and cooling costs by moving to HCI platforms.

However, there is a downside: The efficiency of bundling compute and storage in a single device comes at the cost of flexibility. For organisations whose compute and storage needs don’t scale exactly in parallel, it can lead to needless overprovisioning and waste.

HCI 2.0 solves this problem by disaggregating IT infrastructure—and adding a layer of AI-powered self-management to make IT operations even more trouble-free.
