Converged Infrastructure15Converged Infrastructure platforms and appliances provide an efficiency-boosting approach to data center infrastructure for delivering virtualization or deploying a private cloud, achieved by combining data center components into an appliance form factor that can be centrally managed and that is easier to scale.Oracle Exalogic1https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/VC/02/T4E108T4IWP2-180x180.PNGHP ConvergedSystem 500 for SAP HANA2https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/qq/uK/ZTECRXT03ME3-180x180.JPEGVCE Vblock3https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/xW/Gb/SGTVSU5KIT5G-180x180.JPEGFlexPod4https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/zH/H2/7V3V09EB6KEG.pngIBM PureSystems5https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/yf/sf/DNSXTG99HOK3-180x180.JPEGHVE-VDI Appliance6https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/mu/AM/32V5F9BS6KZN-180x180.JPEGHitachi Unified Compute Platform7https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/RG/Yt/MJIDJV0VP3AN-180x180.JPEGRackspace OpenStack8https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/K1/O6/7S697IGMC24V-180x180.PNGIBM CloudBurst9https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/yf/sf/DNSXTG99HOK3-180x180.JPEGDell PowerEdge FX10https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/QU/Ro/1VKOUZJX2NK3-180x180.PNGDell PowerEdge VRTX11https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/QU/Ro/1VKOUZJX2NK3-180x180.PNGHPE ConvergedSystem 70012https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/qq/uK/ZTECRXT03ME3-180x180.JPEGLenovo Converged System13https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/Jf/zs/OUDXTOV4PAKK.pngInfinio14https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/Us/ik/ESZTZUDMTCP5-180x180.PNGOracle SuperCluster15https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/VC/02/T4E108T4IWP2-180x180.PNGOracle Private Cloud Appliance16https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/VC/02/T4E108T4IWP2-180x180.PNGIBM VerstaStack17https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/yf/sf/DNSXTG99HOK3-180x180.JPEGDell EMC VxBlock System18https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/xW/Gb/SGTVSU5KIT5G-180x180.JPEGHDS Unified Compute Platform19https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/RG/Yt/MJIDJV0VP3AN-180x180.JPEGVersaStack20https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/yf/sf/DNSXTG99HOK3-180x180.JPEG

Converged Infrastructure Platforms

Converged Infrastructure Overview

What is Converged Infrastructure?

Converged infrastructure is an attempt to break down the traditional IT infrastructure silos by providing pre-configured bundles of hardware and software in a single chassis. This means that compute, networking, and storage resources are tightly coupled in pre-engineered packages linked together with software. Other names for this approach are “unified computing” or “datacenter in a box”.

The advantages of converged infrastructure are minimization of compatibility issues, simplified vendor management, and lower costs. Converged infrastructure eliminates the difficulty of provisioning server, storage and applications, which requires teams of people and a lot of time.

When compute, storage, and networking are combined into a pool of shared, pre-configured resources, they can be up and running in a data center in a matter of hours.

Beyond Converged Infrastructure

After infrastructure convergence, the next step is “hyper-converged Infrastructure” where instead of being separate components engineered to work well together, hyper-converged systems are modular appliances sold by a single vendor – usually commodity hardware boxes - containing both computing, virtualization, and storage resources which can be added together for simple scaling.
