Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is the natural evolution of converged infrastructure, the practice of controlling and changing computer, network, and storage functions in the same server or architecture.
Hyperconvergence supercharges this process by using only software to build and deploy the elements of your information and communication technology (ICT) architecture virtually across a network, usually through a hypervisor environment, rather than in discrete and separate units of hardware, giving you much more control over customization. It can be run using off-the-shelf servers like you’d find at any mass market cloud or data center provider.
The most common use case for the enterprise is to simplify infrastructure, particular for large players who might have teams, offices, servers, and equipment at multiple locations.
