    Session Title: Hyperconverged and the Business Impact


    Hyperconvergence began in smaller use cases, such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), but enterprises now commonly use the technology to simplify the deployment, management and scaling of IT resources and to reap Capex and Opex advantages.

    Why companies are moving to hyperconvergence

    The all-in-one characteristics of the hyper-converged data center are attractive to IT professionals who are used to having to piece these components together themselves or with the sometimes-costly assistance of vendors and IT consultants. Hyperconvergence also enables generalists to administer the systems.
