Our Converged Infrastructure solution for datacenter combine storage, networking, and server components into a single, flexible architecture for enterprise workloads. It is a validated design that ships as a ready-to-deploy infrastructure in a rack. It comes with a single management console for management of all the components including automation and orchestration tools for fast provisioning of virtual machines and their underlying resources.

The solution is ideal to speed up deployment of cloud-based datacenter infrastructures and business critical applications while reducing costs, complexity and risk. The solution ensures interoperability between component hardware providers with unified support for all components within the converged stack.

Converged infrastructure (CI) is the combination of computing, networking, storage, management software, and automation capabilities into a single, unified solution. Converged infrastructure can simplify and accelerate deployment while reducing risk with validated solutions.

Converged infrastructure is typically comprised of the following elements





Management Software

Automation and Orchestration Capabilities

Converged infrastructure solutions can be designed, tested, and prevalidated for a variety of applications and industry use cases.

Converged infrastructure vendors may deliver equipment tested, preracked, and ready to use like a mini datacenter in a box. Alternatively, the equipment can be assembled at a customer site, along with a reference architecture document, which is a detailed guide on how to deploy and configure the solution.
