Thinking about moving to an open hyperconverged infrastructure? Excellent choice.
A hyperconverged infrastructure provides a number of key benefits. It combines virtualization with software-defined compute and storage into one small, easy-to-manage footprint, which saves space, money, and time. You can manage your resources from a single interface and consolidate infrastructure. You can deploy at the network edge, at a remote office, or even within the datacenter. And, if you go the open source route, you can tap into the endless innovation supplied by the massive open source development community.
Before you make the move, there are some things you need to know. Steps you need to take. Boxes you need to check off. Eight boxes, to be precise.
Here is a checklist to help ensure that you have everything you need to implement an open hyperconverged infrastructure.
