Hyper-Converged (HCI) Questions
Aug 12 2020
How does hyper-converged differ from converged?
Is one better than the other? When would one choose converged, rather than hyper-converged?
Are there pros and cons to each type of solution?

What are some important factors to keep in mind and to compare when choosing between HCI solutions?

From my own research, it seems that Converged Infrastructure relies on hardware, whereas Hyper-Converged Infrastructure is software-based. What does this mean in practical terms? What are the pros and cons of each?
What are key factors that businesses should take into consideration when choosing between traditional SAN and hyper-converged solutions?
What are the benefits of using cloud versus hyper-converged infrastructure? What should enterprises take into account when choosing between these storage options?
I work for a VAR and I have a customer who is interested in HCI but one of their requirements is segment routing.
Segment routing is a forwarding paradigm that provides source routing, which means that the source can define the path that the packet will take. Segment routing still uses MPLS to forward the packets, but the labels are carried by an IGP. In segment routing, every node has a unique identifier called the node SID.
I could not find anything around segment routing and HCI solutions so I was wondering if you were aware of any HCI solutions that supported segment routing?
Thanks! I appreciate the help.
