What is hyperconvergence?
From the wide variety of definitions of Hyperconvergence whirled around by vendors over the past decade, here’s the one that should cover it all: A data center using hyperconvergence (HCI) enables workloads (software) to be deployed, hosted and managed in a data center using Hardware designed to scale and adapt to the diverse needs of these workloads as well as the changing operating conditions of the data center. The needs of the software are answered and addressed by all the hardware in the facility or in the hyper-converged cluster acting collectively.
HCI is hardware
The main difference here is that hardware. There are a variety of workload delivery and orchestration systems in the data center today.
