What is Converged Infrastructure?

Converged Infrastructure (CI) solutions use a best of breed hardware approach to combine compute, storage, networking hardware and visualization software into a single, integrated architecture.

Why Organisations Choose Converged Infrastructure?

Organisations that buy converged infrastructure solutions are typically more performance centric.  They want to power tier 1 workloads and have a centricity around performance, availability and deploying applications at scale.  CI buyers also tend to want flexibility to either support an all ethernet infrastructure or an already in place fibre channel infrastructure.  They want IT convergence without compromise.
