What Is Hyperconverged Storage?

Hyperconverged Storage is a vital part of Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), merging computing, networking, and storage into a unified virtualized system. It operates via a software-defined model, replacing dedicated hardware with dynamic storage pools across nodes within a cluster. This approach utilizes software-defined networking (SDN) and load balancing to efficiently handle requests from diverse hardware. It simplifies resource management and reduces total ownership costs compared to public cloud providers.
