One of the more popular misconceptions often mistaken for gospel truth these days is that hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) platforms don’t scale – and can only be used for remote office or smaller customers. HCI platforms, in fact, can already efficiently scale out to cost-effectively handle well north of 80 percent of most application workload requirements. Another misconception is that they are not ready for critical applications. That’s simply not right. North of 65% of HCI customers are supporting applications they deem mission critical.
Yet another misconception is that HCI is really only suited for VDI, or workloads where CPU/storage scale together. Yet again – not right. Yes, they are great for VDI, but they are also great for all sorts of workloads, particularly when they can support all kinds of flexible configurations.
