Finally the hyper converged systems, called HCIS for “Hyperconverged Integrated Systems”, which have specificity to use the attached storage, and propose a software layer densely management.
HP implants house technology to its converged products
At the same time and in the same industry, HP announced the abandonment of its integration of converged products Evo architecture Rail property VMware. HP decided to position instead StoreVirtual house technology. HP worked with Evo: Rail since last October, but seems he managed to bring out an alternative technology meantime. HP mentions that StoreVirtual technology allows running hypervisors VMware (ESXi), Microsoft (Hyper-V), and KVM,
Note that HP has therefore stopped marketing systems ConvergedSystem HC-200 Evo: Rail mid-July.
