    Source: Pivot3 Inc
    White Paper: The concept of a hyperconverged data center, where collections of commodity servers are magically reconfigured through software to provide virtualized compute, storage and network services through a single point of control, sounds appealing to many IT professionals. In order to transition to this new but compelling type of IT architecture, businesses need to consider specialized hyperconverged appliances, which provide an easy, cost-effective entrée to this world. Hyperconvergence moves past the provisioning of CPU power via hypervisors and enables a second generation of consolidation in the data center by bringing SAN-like storage capabilities into easy-to-configure and manage devices. This, in turn, lets companies easily bring more powerful capabilities to a range of IT tasks.
