Hyper-converged infrastructure is a very hot topic in IT right now, without a doubt. Customers are interested in building a fully functional virtualized infrastructure including compute, storage and management. On March 1, Cisco announced the new hyper-converged solution, Hyperflex, at the Cisco Partner Summit in San Diego. Based on Cisco UCS technology, the solution offers a unique way to leverage virtualized SAN and compute power across different nodes within one cluster and one management instance. With the HX220c and HX240c nodes, the hyper-converged system can be built up and extended dynamically and flexibly to fit in to the requirements.
