What is hyper-converged infrastructure?

A hyper-converged infrastructure is an infrastructure model that utilizes a software-centric architecture and has tight integration with the storage, networking, computing, and virtualization software and hardware resources. This type of infrastructure reduces complexity and helps simplify resource management. It also enables the management of all the integrated resources from a single common toolset. It is an improvement over a converged infrastructure, where the vendor provides a preconfigured bundle of software and hardware as a single unit.
