Tapping into the full power of your hyperconverged infrastructure


Let’s say you are planning a BBQ and you need to buy the beer. You do some quick math and determine you either need seven 24-packs (168 bottles total) or a 15.5 gallon beer keg (equal to about 165 bottles). If you buy the cases, you’d get a little more for your money and everyone gets individual bottles, but have you considered how and where are you going to store and chill 168 individual bottles of beer? All the coolers and ice you’ll need, not to mention unpacking seven cases of beer, providing easy access to the coolers, and collecting and returning empties after the party. And what if it rains, and only half the people show up – where do you put all those extra bottles? Alternatively, a keg can be cooled in one big bucket, involves less labor to manage, and your guests can access it easily once the keg is tapped. It’s all about simplicity and scalability. Both of these scenarios provide plenty of beer for the party, but only one is easy to scale and manage.

Arguably, the most underrated benefit of hyperconverged infrastructure is scalability. A scale-out architecture provides flexibility and extensibility to the datacenter. Using a hyperconverged node (or box), you can easily start with what is needed and add more – should you require it. And it’s simple to manage. It comes down to managing multiple units or investing in the capacity of one.
