Master the hyper-converged market

Sponsored by SearchConvergedInfrastucture

It wasn't that long ago when the hyper-converged market was dominated by a small number of startups and, when it came to options, IT pros didn't have a lot to choose from. The hyper-converged market featured mostly single nodes which included storage, networking, compute and virtualization.

Today's hyper-converged market has greatly diversified, with most major vendors offering some form of hyper-converged technology in their products.

Other vendors have begun offering software-only hyper-converged products that pool all storage capacity seen by the hypervisor under a global namespace. These software-only products provide storage functionality in the form of thin provisioning or deduplication.

How do you know which hyper-converged product is right for you? This Handbook shows you the converged architecture options on the market today, seven criteria for choosing the right hyper-converged system for you, and how flash fits into the mix. After reading this Handbook, you'll have a better understanding of the technology to make a purchase decision.
