Hyperconvergence is about extending the trend of the convergence of data center beyond the components of the hardware. Hyperconvergence is basically virtualization technology. Hyper-convergence refers to bringing the practical aspects of infrastructure simultaneously with the material, ensuing in a single solution. Hyper-convergence is an addition to the overall trend of convergence, contracting the data center into an appliance—with dispersed hardware machinery being united back together e.g. Cisco’s UCS, IBM Pure Systems, and VCE VBlock solutions.
Hyper-convergence is a type of network integrated system that natively converges virtualization, storage, networking, and computing services into software supported by a single vendor.
Hyper-convergence can be a replacement of storage arrays in all market segments and companies will no longer need to rely on different computer and storage systems.
It’s a unified tool-set to manage all the storage, compute and networking elements as a single device. HCI is a software-centric environment to manage the virtualization platform within the organization.
Unifying all platform types to one, Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) helps the organization to reduce the total cost of ownership as well as lessens the difficulties associated with adding new technologies.
Some hyper-converged solutions leave hooks where connect own hypervisor and linked administration tools. In case of Scale’s HC3, we have gone two steps further.
The self-healing, automatic administration layer, the ICOS, which handles system clustering and hardware failure, now handles virtualization administration, source provisioning, and VM failover.
HC3 (HyperCore 3) is a hyper-converged machine from Scale Computing. According to Scale Computing, HC3 is a data center in a package that enables appliance-like operation without having the need of a license for a hypervisor.
Having HC3 one would reduce the need to purchasing servers, installing virtualization software on those servers, configuring management tools, purchase and installing either a SAN or NAS, and finally network the whole bundle together because all these layers are put together into one.
HC3 consists of nodes in the form a cluster which is designed to allow applications to automatically restart on other nodes to minimize the downtime in event of a complete node failure.
All resources of each node are collected into a lone cluster, making it a single super-server for both the user and his applications. Different types of nodes can be mixed and matched in a cluster, providing elasticity to build out the ideal infrastructure for applications.
The hypervisor is flawlessly incorporated with HC3. One does not need to purchase virtualization software or licenses from any vendor, neither is there any preceding information or guidance in virtualization to use the HC3.
Hyperconvergence helps the organizations to meet their business needs with much less difficulty as well as flexibility. Moreover, it is also the agile architecture which is far better positioned to help organizations quickly meet the rising needs and gain business outcomes.
