What is Superconverged?
Superconverged is a 4th generation IT infrastructure after Siloed, Converged and Hyperconverged that is explicitly designed to be the easiest to use on-premise cloud platform.
- Tightly integrate server, storage, networking, virtualization, application-centric management and an application marketplace to create a platform that includes everything needed to run applications out of the box.
- Virtualize everything – compute, storage and networking.
- Allow each of these three resources to scale easily and independently of each other.
- Employ a single unified cloud-based controller to manage the entire infrastructure from one console.
What makes Superconverged different?
Superconverged systems differ from hyperconverged systems (HCI) in 4 key ways:
Superconverged systems include networking and network virtualization. They make network management very simple. They also provide application-level micro-segmentation.
Superconverged systems are managed from the cloud and don’t need additional set-up and cost of on-premise management servers.
Superconverged systems allow independent scaling of compute, storage and networking. So, they support a wider diversity of workloads.
Superconverged systems include an application marketplace that allows for 5 click deploy of complex enterprise applications – analogous to an App store on the iPhone.
Learn the benefits and limitations of the 3 generations of IT infrastructure – siloed, converged and hyperconverged – and discover how the 4th generation of IT infrastructure can transform your business.
Network virtualization is critical to simplify application scaling and improve application performance without lengthy maintenance windows and potential security risks.
