This IDC Perspective delves into hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) architecture and how it can enable a hybrid cloud architecture that can provide a single, consistent view of both on-premises and public clouds."Software vendors offer both appliance-based and software-defined HCI platforms and enable them to run across a growing number of clouds services," said Lucas Mearian, research manager, IDC's Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies Group.
