Technologies that power both Converged and Hyper Converged systems are constantly evolving and improving. The conventional approach to IT cannot accommodate business agility, which is challenging to achieve. To meet business and extended ecosystem expectations, businesses must transform their infrastructure-centric service delivery model. There are unique differences between Converged and Hyper Converged infrastructures in terms of how they overcome the challenges to eliminate the pain points associated with legacy infrastructures. But both systems are designed in a way to work together, with software that can manage them all automatically. Future generations will undoubtedly be upgraded or updated with both systems.
LionHeart Computer Systems is your premier provider of converged and hyper-converged systems for your data centre needs. Our solutions are designed to help streamline your infrastructure, simplify management, and improve efficiency.
An infrastructure solution that combines storage, computing, networking and visualization into a single pre-configured unit, a converged system is a pre-integrated system that provides turnkey solutions for data centre management. Converged systems are designed to simplify IT infrastructure by providing a single point of contact for support, reducing the complexity of the deployment process, and enabling faster deployment and scaling.
Benefits of converged infrastructure over traditional data centre management
Due to the pre-configured and fully integrated nature of these systems, they are easy to deploy and scale. This in turn eliminates the need for complicated deployment processes and saves time and resources.
Designed to be simple to manage and reduce the complexity of data centre management, converged systems provide a single point of contact for support, thus simplifying maintenance and troubleshooting.
Converged systems are designed to be flexible, allowing businesses to scale their resources up and down as needed. This makes them ideal for businesses that require agility and fast deployment for new applications.
Converged systems are optimized for performance and efficiency, which can lead to lower power and cooling costs, reduced hardware requirements, and increased productivity.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Converged systems can offer a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to traditional data centre infrastructure. This is due to their reduced complexity, simplified deployment, and improved efficiency.
Converged systems can be configured in several ways, including reference architectures, and integrated systems. Each configuration has its own strengths and weaknesses, and the best configuration for your business will depend on your specific requirements.
Hyper-converged systems include software-defined storage that aggregates storage capacity across the entire cluster of nodes. It also includes a hypervisor that runs on each node, which provides virtualization services for the VMs. These extensions of converged systems provide a high degree of scalability and flexibility, allowing for easy scaling of resources as needed. They are also designed to improve the agility and speed of deploying new applications.
Key Features of Hyper-converged Systems
A hyper-converged system is built using a software-defined approach where all the components are virtualized and abstracted from the underlying hardware. The components are tightly integrated and managed through a single management interface.
Typically include compute nodes, storage devices (often in the form of SSDs or HDDs), and a virtualization layer (such as VMware or Hyper-V) that runs on each node. Networking components may also be included, such as switches or routers.
Hyperconverged systems are designed to be highly scalable, with additional nodes easily added to the cluster to increase capacity. This can be done without downtime or disruption to existing workloads.
Hyperconverged systems are managed through a single pane of glass, which provides a unified view of all the components in the system. This makes it easier for IT teams to manage the infrastructure and troubleshoot issues.
These systems are well-suited for a range of use cases, including virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), private cloud deployments, and remote office/branch office (ROBO) environments.
