Hyper Converged Infrastructure

What is Hyper Converged Infrastructure

Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) streamlines the deployment, management and scaling of Datacenter resources by combining x86-based server and storage resources with intelligent software in a turnkey software-defined solution. Separate servers, storage networks and storage arrays can be replaced with a single hyper-converged infrastructure solution to create an agile Datacenter that easily scales with your business.

For IT leaders embarking on Datacenter modernization projects, Hyper-convergence means more than merging storage and compute into a single solution. Multiple infrastructure components are integrated into a compact, efficient platform that is simple enough to be managed without specialized training. The more components in a hyper-converged node, the less you have to manage. When the entire IT stack is combined into a software-defined platform, you can accomplish complex tasks in minutes instead of hours.

Hyper-convergence gives you the agility and economics of the cloud with the enterprise capabilities of on-premises infrastructure. The chief difference between converged and hyper-converged infrastructure is that the former relies on hardware, where as the latter is software-defined, more flexible, maneuverable and scalable.

Do you need Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI)?

  • Does your Datacenter infrastructure have limited scalability?
  • Is your Infrastructure complex and challenging to manage?
  • Is it difficult to upgrade and maintain Compute, Storage and Networking?
  • Is there a constant focus on driving down operational costs?
  • Are you experiencing performance issues on legacy hardware?
  • Are you looking to modernize your Datacenter and offer a more modular and scalable infrastructure?

If you answered yes to these six questions, introducing Hyper-Converged Infrastructure can help your organization.

Why Hyper-Converged Infrastructure?

Hyper-converged infrastructure promises to deliver:

  • Simplicity and flexibility when compared with legacy solutions;
  • Integrated storage systems, servers and networking switches are designed to be managed as a single system, reducing operational overhead;
  • Software-defined storage is expected to yield greater scalability and resource efficiency. Starting small and paying as you grow is a key benefit;
  • Cost savings in areas including Datacenter power and space; IT labor; and avoidance of licensed software such as backup or disaster recovery tools;
  • Services including Professional Services, Managed Services and Assessments

How Ergo can help

Ergo can deliver flexible and agile hyper-converged infrastructure solutions to custom-make a solution that provides the right workload, from the right place, at the right time, for your business. We currently hold Dell EMC VxRail certifications for design and implementation of all VxRail solutions and VMware HCI (vSAN) certified to design and deploy VSANReady based architectures. We can design, implement, and operate these solutions, utilizing our highly certified Professional Services engineering team, who have experience deploying small VSAN ROBO solutions and large scale 50 Node + stretched-clustered in mission-critical environments. Not sure if your organization is suitable for hyper-converged infrastructure? Contact our Cloud Infrastructure Solutions team to arrange your free HCI Readiness Assessment.



VxRail features next-generation technology. It provides future-proofing for your infrastructure, including NVMe cache drives, SmartFabric Services supported by Dell EMC Networking switches, advanced VMware Cloud integration through VMware Validated Designs (VVD) guidance, and automated tools and guides to simplify the deployment of a secure VxRail infrastructure. It delivers a turnkey experience that enables our customers to innovate continuously. 

Consolidates compute, storage, and virtualization with end to end automated lifecycle management

Offers deep integration with VMware tools, including operational transparency with vCenter

Automates network setup greatly simplifying and accelerating deployment

Provides a single point of support for appliance software and hardware


Reduce project risk and improve storage efficiency with VMware vSAN software-defined storage for hyper-converged infrastructure. vSAN delivers high-performance, flash-optimized hyper-converged storage for any application – at a fraction of the cost of traditional, purpose-built storage and other less efficient HCI solutions.


VSAN Ready Nodes enable easy deployment with factory-installed, pre-configured and pre-tested configurations that can add up to a solution that scales quickly to meet growing needs.


VSAN Ready Nodes improve storage efficiency while helping reduce capital expense (CAPEX) with server-side economics, affordable flash and grow-as-you-go scaling. Reducing the time and effort, it takes to deploy and manage compute, and storage infrastructure can also reduce operational expense (OPEX).


Invest in hardware that’s purpose-designed to support VMware VSAN – Dell EMC VSAN Ready Nodes are built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers that have been pre-configured, tested and certified to run VMware VSAN. Each ReadyNode includes just the right amount of CPU, memory, network I/O controllers, HDDs, and SSDs suited for VMware VSAN.
