Hyper-Converged Infrastructure

Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is the natural evolution of server virtualization. An integrated software stack, it delivers all key data center functions—compute, storage, storage networking, and unified management—and runs on industry-standard x86 servers.

Enabling a simple building-block architecture with scale-out capabilities, VMware, the market leader in powering HCI, enables the lowest-cost and highest-performance next-generation HCI solutions.

With virtualized and software-based resources, companies can dramatically increase efficiency, improve flexibility, reduce TCO, and see a unified view across the data center. Additional capabilities like network virtualization and advanced management can be added and managed from a single pane of glass. VMware HCI makes it easier than ever to:

Reduce TCO by 50 percent

  • Radically simple to deploy and manage
  • Single, tightly integrated software stack
  • Five times greater hardware choice based on advantages of server economics
  • Common management framework that uniquely extends to traditional storage
  • Manage with existing tools
  • Easier troubleshooting and less finger pointing

Accelerate responsiveness

  • Non-disruptive, one-click policy changes
  • Flash optimization eliminates capacity planning and placement decisions
  • Linear, granular scale-up or scale-out
  • High virtual machine density with efficiencies of in-kernel architecture
  • No performance tuning and easy fixes if underconfigured

Enable business for tomorrow

  • Rapidly adopt next-generation hardware
  • One platform for traditional applications and CNA/containers
  • Non-disruptive path to SDDC/building block for cross-cloud services
