10 Cool Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Systems In 2022

Mark Haranas

From Dell VxRail and HPE SimpliVity to Quantum VS-HCI and Scale Computing HE500, CRN breaks down 10 of the hottest hyperconverged infrastructure systems to know in 2022.

Azure Stack HCI

Microsoft’s Azure Stack HCI is focused on providing a hybrid cloud solution that integrates on-premises and edge, virtual machines (VMs), and container services into the Azure cloud. The solution uses the same software-defined compute, storage and networking software as Azure Stack Hub.

The Azure Stack HCI runs Windows and Linux virtual machines in either a data center or an edge environment. Azure Stack clusters contain between two and 16 servers, which run an operating system that is specifically designed for hyperconverged infrastructure. Microsoft includes a deployment wizard to quickly set up an Azure Stack HCI cluster and connect to Azure to leverage native integration with core Azure services.

The Azure Stack HCI is offered as a subscription-based solution based on the version of Hyper-V and HCI stack used in the Azure cloud.
