    Tip - VMware isn't the right fit for everyone, so what's the next step? There are options, like cloud, if you want to move away from VMware.
  • hyper-converged network

    Definition - A hyper-converged network is a network that combines compute and storage network resources into a single preconfigured stack, server or brick with heavy use of virtualization. Typically, a hyper-converged network is built on server hardware that uses virtualized storage, unifying all hard disks or SSD’s into a single storage stack.
