Tech ONTAP Podcast Episode 2: Converged Infrastructure vs. Hyper-Converged Infrastructure

Tech ONTAP Podcast - Episode 2

 

Converged solutions, such as FlexPod, are the natural progression from the traditional IT infrastructure to simple, prevalidated solutions with integrated and standardized components. These converged infrastructures combine storage, networking, and server technologies into a single, flexible architecture for enterprise workload. Hyper Converged Solutions like NetApp Integrated EVO:RAIL Solution (NIERS) deliver a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources in a commodity server supported by a single vendor. So what differentiates a converged infrastructure (CI) from hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI)?

 

On this episode of the Tech ONTAP Podcast, we sit down with Eric Railine, Technical Marketing Engineer, NetApp, to discuss the rapidly growing HCI market and introduce the NetApp Integrated EVO:RAILS Solution.

 

Eric is a member of the Converged Infrastructure Solutions group focusing on EVO:Rail and NetApp Integrated EVO:RAILS Solutions. Follow him on Twitter or visit his blog.
