Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI)

Save time and money with Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI)

Looking for a complete IT Infrastructure solution that’s simple to deploy and manage? LIMA design and deliver Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions that deliver consolidation, performance and scalability while simplifying ongoing management 


Hyper-converged infrastructure combines compute, storage and management onto industry-standard x86 servers, delivering a software defined, building-block approach to IT.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) takes the separate commodity hardware elements - compute, storage, networking and hypervisor - and condenses them into dedicated nodes/appliances that easily scale as the resourcing needs increase and most importantly adds a software defined layer to all elements creating automation and orchestration across the entire platform.

Typically, HCI takes a module-based approach where the platform is first sized based on the immediate requirements and additional nodes procured as required.  Additional nodes provide an increase to the specific resources that need expanding.

HCI evolves the way that compute, storage, and management are delivered and provisioned to help you to:

  • Cut operational and capital costs. In the right environment, HCI can reduce costs by up to 50%.

  • Increase information technology (IT) and business agility

  • Improve application performance.

Typically, HCI is deployed as a hybrid solution alongside the existing legacy platform and expands as the company transitions into cloud/hybrid cloud platforms.

Despite being an on-prem solution, HCI is most definitely a step towards a cloud ethos.  For organisations developing a cloud-first or cloud ready strategy, the software defined principles of HCI make it a logical consideration as workloads come up for review.
