While we all ramp up for VMworld 2013 I am excited to announce the release of a new version of my calculator. This new version (4.0) introduces the support for hyper-converged infrastructures.
For years, IT organizations have built data centers organized around three key independent hardware segments – compute, network and storage. However, with the rise of commoditization and the move to automated and software defined architectures, converged hardware is growing in popularity. These solutions may provide reduced complexity, lower overall costs, and easier upgrade paths than are often found with more traditional solutions.
This version of the calculator introduces an easy way to identify requirements for hyper-converged infrastructures. Please note that vendors may have different architecture models that require fine adjustment to the calculations. Please talk to your vendor.
