Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Briefing

2 hours
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) offers organizations software-centric data center infrastructure that seamlessly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization technologies. This briefing explores the HCI market, who the top players are, what are the appropriate use cases, what differentiates the different vendors and commonly asked questions when evaluating or integrating HCI. As part of the briefing, we will also include a live demonstration of our on-demand HCI labs and explain how to access them.

It's important to understand how HCI came about in the data center and the problems the technologies look to solve.
