Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is a type of data center architecture that combines compute, storage, and networking into a single, integrated system. It is designed to be easy to deploy, manage, and scale, and is typically used to support virtualized workloads, such as virtual machines (VMs) and containers.
In an HCI system, compute and storage resources are pooled and abstracted from the underlying hardware and can be easily provisioned and managed through a single interface. This allows organizations to deploy and manage their data center infrastructure, without the need for separate teams to manage different components quickly and easily.
HCI systems are often built using commodity hardware and software-defined storage and networking technologies, which can make them more cost-effective than traditional data center architectures. They are also highly scalable and can support a wide range of workloads and applications.
