Hyperconvergence vendors provide pencil out solutions that are free from large initial costs and eliminate the need to purchase expensive IT infrastructure components every few years. The hyperconverged platform is built on easy-on-the-pocket commodity hardware, while a building-block approach makes it simple to expand and scale IT infrastructure as needed.
Hyperconverged storage denotes a software-defined approach to storage management combining storage, compute, virtualization, and networking technologies into one integral unit using the same hardware. Each storage node in the cluster runs identical virtualization software. Resources are virtualized on one node and shared with other nodes in the cluster providing clustered applications with a unified storage pool. The latter is centrally managed and monitored through a single console. Being one of the leading hyperconverged vendors, StarWind offers HyperConverged Appliance (HCA) , Virtual SAN (VSAN) , and StarWind Virtual Tape Library (VTL) building blocks for your hyperconverged infrastructure.
