Converged Infrastructure: 3 Considerations

What a great platform and computing model. The modern infrastructure has come such a long way that we now require a new way to process all of this new information.

Infrastructure convergence helps combine the core network, compute and storage capabilities to deliver a true next-gen architecture. The really cool part around converged systems is that it helps redesign how workloads are assigned to resources in a truly virtualization-ready environment. Nutanix, Cisco (with UCS), and many others are among those offering converged infrastructure.

So, let’s take a quick look at three considerations around a converged platform:

  • Everything under one roof. That’s right – one of the biggest aspects of a converged system is the management capability. This means policy control, resource distribution, and even controlling your cloud can all be done from one single management plane. Pretty cool stuff!
  • They’ve got APIs. A part of the converged infrastructure is the ability to interconnect with other systems. It could be management or even other pieces of a data center. The point is the ability to use an open architecture to effectively connect with critical components of an infrastructure.
  •  Not all converged infrastructure systems are created equal. Always take your use-case into consideration. Not all converged systems are built the same of for the same purpose. The UCS/Invicta combination may be better suited for enterprises rather than a Nutanix platform capable of handling branch or other corporate operations. The point is that picking the right converged system can really go a long way.

Check out the full article here on NetworkComputing to see how a converge infrastructure can help you out! One final thought: When you look for a converged platform, know that there can be some pretty big differences as far as use cases and design. So make sure you ask us for architecture and deployment guidance.
