    Arguably, nothing in the last decade has been more transformative to how IT is delivered than server virtualization. The industry has evolved from simply installing hypervisors on traditional servers, through deploying blades and chassis, and most recently, to leveraging what many consider epitome of the IT infrastructure building block: the hyperconverged appliance and the converged-systems rack architecture.

    What should a business consider as it looks to leverage hyperconverged? Software-defined? Scale-out? Converged or Hyperconverged? Do-it-yourself or appliance? What role do these appliances play in the world of the modern software-defined data center? Which workloads work best? Do appliances need to be configured for specific workload demands – IOPS, CPU, memory, network? What are the key evaluation criteria and why does it matter?
