Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) provides compute and storage unified into a single, scalable management platform.
It is a software-defined IT infrastructure that virtualizes all of the elements of a traditional, hardware-defined data center (storage, compute, networking, and management).
The intelligent software of an HCI is capable of creating flexible building blocks to replace legacy infrastructure.

HCIs unify data center infrastructure components – compute, storage, and networking – into an abstracted layer of available IT resources.
Through virtualization, hyperconverged infrastructure converges data center server hardware with locally, direct-attached storage media (HDD, SSD, NVMe) powered by a distributed software layer. This now single pool of virtualized resources can then be distributed as needed.
This distributed platform running on industry-standard commodity servers replaces complex and expensive legacy infrastructure.
The pool of resources can be scaled and applied as required by the assignment.
An HCI platform typically features four tightly integrated software components.
