Hyper-converged systems integrates computing, networking and storage functions in a single physical component, also called data center in a box. This reduces data center complexity and boosts efficiency.
Hyper-converged infrastructure is a component of software-defined solutions that use several standard servers to replace a range of highly specialized hardware (e.g. traditional storage systems).
They make it possible to integrate computer, storage and software networks with resource virtualization, unified management and other technologies running on traditional server hardware. Hyper-converged systems feature improved resource utilization and streamlined management of the entire system. More advanced solutions include data compression and deduplication as well as the optimization of network traffic when replicating data between data centers.
We offer servers that are preconfigured as hyper-converged systems or we build them ourselves from general-purpose servers and software that supports hyper-convergence.
The system is built on general-purpose servers, and it integrates storage, local drivers, CPUs, memory and many other useful technologies in a compact unit.
The solution is a cost-effective choice for medium-sized companies as well as large enterprises that can scale-up or down by adding or removing servers to reflect changing business requirements.
Solutions for managing this high-performance infrastructure include well-known and widely used tools from proven vendors.
There is no need to separate the IT team into individual segments (network, storage, etc.).
We know that data is an asset for any organization with varying needs to store, process, transfer and secure it. We have extensive experience and use a broad range of solutions from major equipment makers so we can build an optimal and vendor-agnostic data center that’s fully tailored to your needs.

We analyze the existing IT infrastructure, the technologies used, documentation and diagrams. We assess the complexities of the configuration and develop a general plan with improvement recommendations.
We describe the key building blocks and concepts and prepare an architecture diagram of the proposed solution and integration with the existing IT environment. The proposal ensures improved utilization of hardware and other IT resources and compatibility with new technologies and providers of cloud computing services.
We prepare a list of products/software with the relevant licenses with corresponding vendors’ SKUs and descriptions of all components.
We design an IP/VLAN network plan for each segment, allocating resources to individual components, prepare infrastructure diagrams and blueprints for server racks, physical connections, and cabling. We identify critical points of failure and operational activities for managing the data center and the IT services we provide.
We create a detailed infrastructure architecture and configuration instructions for the building blocks and a communication matrix for the services that make up the infrastructure solution (service names, target/source, protocol/interfaces). We prepare the operating rulebook and set up and configure the IT security infrastructure elements.
