To achieve this feat, organizations are increasingly adopting hyper-converged infrastructure that lets administrators manage pools of compute resources, disk assignments for virtual machines, and network underlay configuration all under a single unified management interface. As more enterprises continue moving their resources to cloud and begin using virtual environments, hyper-scale data centers are increasingly becoming the powerhouse to host raw computational data and information.
