HCI: Your cloud journey starts here

If everything the business needs is inside one preconfigured box, will this guarantee easy deployment and scalable capability, or is it just another box of tech?

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is defined by Gartner as a software stack that’s designed to support and enhance infrastructure using tech that spans compute, storage, networking and management. It allows for organisations to dip their digital toes into the waters of cloud-native, hybrid cloud, edge compute and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) on demand, and in tune with strategy. HCI has gained traction and attention because it comes with a bundle of benefits thanks to its combination of traditional and innovative technologies and solutions, all designed to provide organisations with the tools they need to step over legacy infrastructure at a pace that fits both business and budget. It boasts scale, simplicity, agility and performance enhancement built in.

However, it has its own fair share of complexities. After all, is that HCI box of treats really going to make life easier, or is that easy life just another tech promise that’s ready for breaking?
