One of todays IT has consistent growth in hyperconverged infrastructure market. HCI works to drive new levels of infrastructure agility to meet the performance, reliability, security and timing needs of modern business. This solution provides the fastest path to a software-defined data center and easier multi-cloud management. HCI is suit for IT Department who seek speed, efficiency, productivity, and reliability.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) integrates compute, storage and networking into a single appliance coupled with data management and consolidation capabilities that can scale-out according to application needs, thus eliminating the need for a traditional SAN or NAS. The simplicity, scalability, and agility of HCI will continue to be a catalyst for datacenter modernization and help customers transform their IT operations.

Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers and VMware Can Simplify HCI
Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, the bedrock of the modern data center, are custom-built for HCI. PowerEdge servers offer the latest in server innovations, scalability, and security, along with elegant control via plug-ins like OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter® (OMIVV). OMIVV enables intelligent systems management, empowering administrators to easily and quickly deploy new servers, view both physical and virtual server health, and install firmware updates directly from vCenter, the control center of a VMware vSphere® environment.
Enterprise Storage Virtualization Native to vSphere
As a core building block of the software-defined data center (SDDC), VMware vSAN™ powers leading HCI solutions with a high-performance architecture native to vSphere. vSAN is a radically simple software-defined storage (SDS) solution that delivers flash-optimized, scalable and secure shared storage for virtualized workloads, helping lower total cost-of-ownership (TCO) by up to 50%6 compared to traditional storage.
