The link between hyper-convergence and web-scale or “Why Hyper-convergence Needs Web-Scale”
Hyper-converged systems are being discussed with increasing regularity by the trade press and analyst community. VMware’s introduction of EVO:RAIL in August this year validated this new model for infrastructure that Nutanix introduced a few years ago.
Hyper-convergence is a fundamentally different architecture from traditional three-tier infrastructure solutions that are prevalent in data centers today. Hyper-convergence is an architectural model for IT infrastructure in which compute and storage resources are physically packaged in small servers, typically x86 based.
Hyper-converged systems are by their nature distributed systems. The building block of a hyper-converged solution is a physical x86 server with a processor, memory and storage (including Flash). Customers deploy these solutions by buying several of these servers or nodes and connecting them to a top-of-rack Ethernet switch.
