Enterprise hyperconvergence systems, three reasons to use them

9 Jan 2024 | Hyperconvergence

Enterprise hyperconvergence systems have several advantages over traditional IT infrastructures. Key benefits include increased scalability, reliability and ease of management, as well as significant cost reductions.


Cost reduction

In fact, hyperconvergence systems can reduce IT costs in several ways, including:

  • Reduced hardware costs: By unifying processing, storage and networking in a single system, hyperconvergence systems minimize the need for additional hardware.
  • Reduced management costs: Hyperconvergence systems are easier to manage than traditional IT infrastructure, reducing the need for specialized personnel.
  • Reduced energy costs: Hyperconvergence systems can be more energy efficient, leading to lower energy-related expenses.


Improved scalability

Hyperconvergence systems offer a significant scalability advantage, providing companies with the flexibility to adapt to changing business needs. The ability to scale easily is a key feature of these systems, enabling a gradual expansion of computing resources without significant disruption in day-to-day operations.

The scalability of hyperconvergence systems manifests itself through different ways of adaptation. The simple addition or removal of hardware allows companies to increase or decrease resources as needed, ensuring optimal resource utilization without waste.


Improved reliability

Hyperconvergence systems are designed with a focus on reliability, representing a solid guarantee for enterprise business continuity (Business Continuity). Their integrated and cohesive structure enables them to cope with potential failures, ensuring operational stability that minimizes the risks of downtime and critical interruptions.

A key element that contributes to the reliability of these systems is The practice of data replication. Duplication of data across multiple devices or nodes ensures that if one component fails, crucial information is still accessible from other elements of the system, ensuring seamless continuity.

This resilient approach protects sensitive and critical data while minimizing negative impacts on business processes.

In addition, the use of a fault-switching network provides an additional layer of security. Such a mechanism allows the system to automatically redirect traffic through alternate routes in the event of a failure, ensuring that business operations can continue without significant disruption.


What is hyperconvergence?

The term hyperconvergence refers to a type of IT infrastructure having a hardware architecture, or software, that can seamlessly manage all the different resources dedicated todata processing, storage, networking and virtualization.

Hyperconvergence combines computing, storage, networking and virtualization resources into a single solution that can manage all the technologies used as a single system. Most hyperconverged systems require at least three hardware nodes that can be further expanded by adding more. A group of nodes is referred to as a cluster.

I OpenStor hyperconvergence systems are two and differ based on the Method used in the management of IT infrastructure: Metro Cluster or All-in-One. All I OpenStor hyperconvergence systems offer a number of significant advantages over traditional IT infrastructure, including a improved scalability, reliability and management in addition to the considerable cost reduction.
