Sponsored by SearchConvergedInfrastucture

Hyper-converged storage systems have made their mark as a cost-effective, simple-to-deploy storage option for use cases such as virtual desktop infrastructure and remote offices. However, hyper-convergence hasn't yet taken larger enterprises by storm. This could be due to some drawbacks of the technology -- capacity and performance are often required to be scaled together, and many enterprises are concerned about vendor lock-in. However, vendors in today's hyper-converged market are addressing these problems with new systems to push the technology farther mainstream. For example, many vendors offer several configurations of their products, while hyper-converged software and all-flash versions are also emerging on the market.

This handbook will provide an overview of the hyper-converged market as it stands today to help you decide whether the technology might be beneficial to your environment.
