IT infrastructure is the foundation for business continuity. So, what’s the best option for you? Truthfully, it depends… each company is different and IT infrastructure decisions should be made after carefully evaluating the needs and variables of your organization.

In this infographic, we will examine the benefits and disadvantages of two types of infrastructure – hyperconverged and converged – and you’ll be in a better position to decide which one is better for you.

What are converged and hyperconverged infrastructures?

Converged infrastructure is “an approach to data center management that seeks to minimize compatibility issues between servers, storage systems and network devices, while also reducing costs for cabling, cooling, power and floor space.” – TechTarget

In contrast, hyperconverged infrastructure is “a type of infrastructure system with a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources and other technologies from scratch in a commodity hardware box supported by a single vendor.” – TechTarget

Some of the most valuable pieces of information you’ll uncover in this infographic include:

  • The pros and cons of hyperconverged vs. converged Infrastructures
  • Current adopters vs. non-adopters of hyperconverged infrastructure by size of company
  • Hyperconverged infrastructure purchase criteria by current and planned adopters
  • IT priorities for the next 12 – 18 months of companies today
  • Primary interest drivers in hyperconverged infrastructure for companies today
  • Primary reasons some companies have no interest in deploying hyperconverged infrastructures

Based on the critical information contained in this infographic, you should be able to reasonably decide which infrastructure – hyperconverged or converged – will bring the most value to your business.
