Here is a great article about the difference between Hyper-Convergence and Convergence?
The Hyper-convergence of cloud computing infrastructure is now a reality. The growing success of OpenStack implementations in public and private clouds is testimony to the trend of Hyper-convergence.
Hyper-convergence simply means modular distributed systems running on commodity hardware that are by design massively scalable, fault tolerant and reliable.
Now a few questions come to the fore. How are Hyper-converged systems different from traditional converged systems? What is fostering Hyper-convergence trend in the age of multi-clouds (public,private and hybrid clouds)? What are the benefits of Hyper-converged systems? How is OpenStack enabling Hyper-convergence?
We will examine all these questions in this post.
Converged systems vs. Hyper-converged systems
Converged systems are a natural extension of traditional IT infrastructure, which previously existed and operated in silos. The converged systems combined two or more of these technologies to provide pre-engineered systems.
The pre-engineered converged systems are separate technology components engineered to work well when combined…
