This document describes the purpose of "compute and storage separated" scenario and the cases, where it is better than hyper-convergence. Basically, it is about the advantages of a flexible dedicated storage platform over hyperconverged setups when it comes to big pieces of data, backup, DR, etc. In detail, the white paper shows how to solve the issue of overpayment when scaling capacity of the IT infrastructure. When the growth of compute power is not really correlated with storage resources, it is imperative to segregate these resources and deploy them on separated platforms. This architecture, though considered "old", is still relevant in many cases.
