Not All Hyper Converged Infrastructure Solutions Are Created Equal

The three approaches to HCI are:
• Hypervisor on bare metal with storage in a virtual machine
• Hypervisor with integrated storage
• Independent hypervisor and storage

Traditional vs. HCI Infrastructure

HCI solutions offer significant business benefits that include:

• Ease of purchase

• Simple setup

• Consolidated management

• Full-stack support

• Pay-as-you-go economics







The "storage in a VM" HCI architecture relies on a dedicated storage VM on each node to provide storage services across the cluster.







The "integrated hypervisor and storage" architecture adds storage functions to the hypervisor itself.








The "independent hypervisor and storage" architecture runs the hypervisor and storage OS on separate nodes.










Relative strengths of each approach to HCI.
