A converged infrastructure (CI) simplifies IT by combining resources into a single, integrated solution. This approach to data center management reduces costs and minimizes compatibility issues between servers, storage systems and network devices.
You can implement a converged infrastructure with a software driven hyper-converged solution, with standalone appliances, or with a CI reference architecture.
With a CI reference architecture approach, the vendor provides highly integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated architectures. These include recommendations for how best to use hardware components to meet your requirements for specific workloads.
