Resource virtualization helps to create virtual machines that are completely operational isolated copies of servers on one hardware platform, and it allows for simulation of hardware combination needed to run any operating system and makes it possible to introduce the software on different virtual resources.
Virtualization technologies enable different industries to build an IT infrastructure that can be handled easily and managed at a less price, thus removes the dependency on one hardware vendor and ensure more flexible, resilient, and agile IT function.
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) can be defined as a union of storage infrastructure and computing that is very easy to handle and deploy with a single UI. HCI eliminates complicated manual steps involved in the deployment and is designed for simplicity. Since it is meant to be administered by cloud administrators or virtualization, HCI removes the requirement for team members having hardware expertise in computer, storage, or networking.
