The IT infrastructure world is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace, and technologies that were once considered a novelty are becoming obsolete very quickly.The changes in the data center environment in particular, are highly dynamic and complex in nature. Following the introduction of converged technology a couple of years ago, the focus has now moved on to hyper-convergence, especially within small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). The basic reason for this early adoption in SMEs is to do and achieve more with fewer resources. Hyper-convergence was born out of the concept of converged infrastructure products that include storage, compute and networking in one box. Hyper-convergence is a natural progression in this technology from its initial concept. The basic driving forcebehind hyper-convergence is virtualization. Systems that fall under the hyper-convergence category have the hyper visor built into them.
