The total ranking of a product (and the bar length) is based on a weighted aggregate ranking. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in the category. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score and bar length for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14.
In the final section, Average Rating, there are 30 points available to each product independent of the other products.
Reviews and ratings that are more than 24 months old, as well as those by resellers, are excluded

What is Hyper-Converged Infrastructure?

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure refers to a system where numerous integrated technologies can be managed within a single system, through one main channel. Typically software-centric, the architecture tightly integrates storage, networking, and virtual machines.

A Hyper-Converged system enables the system administrator to manage all the systems contained in it through a common set of management tools. This approach allows for the use of commodity hardware. With most designs, it is possible to easily add hyper-converged nodes to expand the infrastructure as needed.

Since virtualized workloads are becoming more prevalent, IT Central Station experts have found that a Hyper-Converged storage infrastructure offers organizations the benefit of removing previously necessary, separate storage networks. Hyper-converged systems are not limited and can be expanded by adding nodes to the base unit.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructures reduce the number of devices in the data center. With its ability to cut down on the need for legacy storage, Hyper-Converged Infrastructure is becoming a more prevalent solution for system availability, complexity and reducing costs. IT departments are focused on continually improving data efficiency with storage capabilities and purpose-built data management. This leads to increased employee productivity, a decrease in TCO and a reduced data center footprint.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure optimizes efficiency, ease of use and system simplicity for IT Central Station key opinion leaders tasked with the responsibility of optimization, scale, and economics. IT managers are constantly looking to upgrade systems for agile enterprise-grade performance. By combining IT infrastructure, including data services, a Hyper-Converged Infrastructure can increase data efficiency, reduce costs for older systems, and optimize virtualization across a traditional or public cloud platform.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure helps organizations stay competitive. Data virtualization will live on one dashboard as VM-centric management makes development more productive. Applications can easily be moved to modern virtual workload environments from siloed, physical environments to VMware infrastructures within a scalable system.
