Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) combines common datacenter hardware using locally attached storage resources with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. Benefits include lower TCO, increased performance, and greater productivity within IT teams.
HCI converges the entire datacenter stack, including compute, storage, storage networking, and virtualization. Complex and expensive legacy infrastructure is replaced by a platform running on turnkey, industry-standard servers that enable enterprises to start small and scale one node at a time. Software running on each server node distributes all operating functions across the cluster for superior performance and resilience.
Today, HCI is the infrastructure of choice for companies that want to stay competitive and ensure their datacenters are cloud-ready. Not all HCI solutions are equal. Here’s what to look for what we are at PROTECH provides when choosing a best of breed solution.
Benefits of hyperconverged infrastructure
The benefits of moving from complex legacy infrastructure to the simplicity of hyperconvergence are many, but among the top reasons organizations make the switch are lower costs, improved, consistent performance, a smaller datacenter footprint, greater efficiency and productivity in IT teams, and maximized infrastructure ROI.

HCI and Virtualization Products
Nutanix help you modernize your datacenters and run applications at any scale, on-prem and in the cloud. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) combines common datacenter hardware using locally attached storage resources with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. Benefits include lower TCO, increased performance, and greater productivity within IT teams. The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is a converged, scale-out compute and storage system that is purpose-built to host and store virtual machines.
Nearly all modern hyperconverged infrastructure solutions are 100% software-defined, with no dependency on proprietary hardware. Each HCI node in a cluster runs a hypervisor (Nutanix AHV, VMware ESXi, or Microsoft Hyper-V), and the HCI control features run as a separate virtual machine on every node, forming a fully distributed fabric that can scale resources with the addition of new nodes.
We at PROTECH provide Nutanix AHV and VMware vSphere Hypervisor on top of the Nutanix HCI:
Virtualization is no longer a complex layer of the IT stack that is licensed, deployed, and managed separately. Nutanix AHV offers a secure, enterprise-grade virtualization solution that streamlines operations. With Ease of Management, Native Security, Low Operational Costs, and Exceptional Performance.
