What is hyper-converged infrastructure


Many companies and organizations are turning to hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) to modernize their data center. HCI brings together highly virtualized compute, storage, and networking on industry-standard x86 servers and components.

It delivers innovation that’s focused on being the best virtualization host and is the future of Hyper-V virtualization, software-defined storage, and networking. It also runs apps inside Windows or Linux virtual machines and runs on HCI-capable hardware from your preferred partner.
