Converged Infrastructure

Converged IT Infrastructure

A converged infrastructure combines servers, networking, and storage into a single optimized computing system that is centrally managed.

  • Allows companies to easily scale
  • Predictable, consistent high performance

A converged infrastructure is implemented by grouping multiple information technology (IT) components into a cohesive and optimized computing package. There are a variety of components that can be integrated into a converged infrastructure. Typically, a converged IT infrastructure involves some combination of servers, data storage devices, networking equipment and software for infrastructure management, automation and related functions.
