There are challenges that Virtual machine (VM) administrators are facing today. System complexity requiring multi-domain experience is top of the list. There is also pressure to support both traditional and modern applications. All together this challenges plus fighting VM sprawl and reduce cost.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) was the new architecture being used by hyper-scalers before. They were looking to create a more flexible infrastructure that was easier to manage, scale and refresh than more traditional storage infrastructure and cost significantly less. With this, Hyper-scalers like Amazon used software-defined server-based storage which popularized the hyperconverged infrastructure approach.
With this much attention, HCI started to create commercial versions and offered in appliance form. The software-defined flexibility, easier management and scalability, and better economics gained HCI popularity with the small and medium business. The simplicity of HCI appealed strongly to many IT organizations that were also experiencing a migration of storage management responsibilities away from dedicated storage administration groups and more towards IT generalists (e.g. :Linux and Windows administrators)
The challenges that HCI has solved are:
- enabling compute
- networking functions
In other words, making it simple to deploy, manage and upgrade infrastructure when scaling compute and storage together is ideal
