What’s all the hype over Hyperconverged infrastructure?

Based on Cisco UCS technology, Cisco HyperFlex™ Systems represent the next generation in hyperconverged infrastructure with a leap in technology that delivers the industry’s first complete end-to-end hyperconverged solution.

Hyperconvergence has been receiving a tremendous amount of attention be­cause it represents the next step in the evolution of IT resource delivery. This technology takes the idea of integrating compute, storage and networking that started with converged systems design and has improved on those architec­tures by adding deeper levels of abstraction and automation. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors promise simplified operation and the ability to quickly and easily expand capacity by deploying and launching additional mod­ules; simplicity has been the key selling point for the HCI pioneers.
