If you’ve been hearing the term hyper-convergence tossed around a lot lately and you’re wondering;

  1. What exactly it is,
  2. What all the fuss is about … you’re not alone!

A relatively new set of technologies named Hyper-Convergence, hasn’t yet gained the market awareness that, for example, Cloud has achieved in the past few years. But, it’s getting there, and you’re going to be hearing a lot more about it, no question.

Today, Codec-dss want to introduce you to the exciting possibilities that hyper-convergence opens up. The best way to do it is to direct your attention to what some HP experts have to say in these recent blog posts:

  • Hyper-Converged Infrastructure: a Software-Defined Data Center in a Box by Karen Brown. The title of this post gives you a really useful way of thinking about hyper-convergence, and Karen follows it up with this definition: HC is “a game-changing technology that seamlessly combines compute, storage and networking in a single, easily scalable appliance.” Plus a great intro to what hyper-converged can do for your remote and office locations.
  • ConvergedSystem 250-HC StoreVirtual Chalktalk by Calvin Zito. This is the place to go for an overview of HP’s latest hyper-converged solution, announced in August. The post includes a short video that does a great job of explaining the kind of workloads and environments that can benefit most from HC.
  • Considerations for your transition to hyper-convergence by Kate Davis. If you decide to make the move to hyper-converged, where should you start your planning? Kate offers five basic principles to guide your transition and get the most out of the new technology. And continuing in the same vein, she goes into more detail on what’s involved in merging hyper-convergence into your data center – without any rip-and-replace – in her post Some things are better blended.
