  • Buyer's checklist to the hyper-converged market

    As the hype around the hyper-converged market persists, more storage administrators are evaluating the systems to determine whether they truly provide cost savings, simplified management and easy scalability. But to make that determination, there's a lot to consider. The first step is determining whether the type of data and business processes used in the environment are suitable to a hyper-converged environment. A virtual desktop infrastructure, for example, is a prime use case for hyper-converged technology. However, an extremely high-capacity environment may be better suited to using object storage or the cloud.

    Today, there are more than a handful of vendors in the hyper-converged market offering systems with varying capacities, compatibility requirements and features. That means storage administrators need to consider many of the same things as they would were they evaluating a traditional SAN or NAS: Is solid-state storage needed for better performance? If so, how much? Is the maximum capacity per hyper-converged node enough for your environment? Does implementing a reference architecture make sense, or should software-only products that are implemented on commodity hardware be considered?

    This buyer's checklist helps storage administrators make an educated purchase decision by providing an overview of the options on the hyper-converged market today, how they differ, which features customers should look for and the top use cases for hyper-converged storage systems.
