Hyper-converged systems introduce an attractive new way to share internal storage among clusters of servers in a compact, cost effective configuration. The challenge these systems pose is that most deny access to valuable storage resources that the enterprise already has in place. This limitation creates data silos which can result in wasted space and a need to over provision storage overall.
KG has just published a paper that explores how DataCore Software integrates hyper-converged systems with existing SANs and Cloud storage to unify the data infrastructure across an enterprise, measurably reduce costs and simplify data sharing and data protection.
