Not the opposite
Making Infrastructure Work for Applications
Limitation of HCI
Due to its monolithic storage capability, HCI is suitable for a single application, or a narrow set of applications.
Pause of innovation
Since the first software-defined storage based on standard servers followed by different variants, there has been no further development.
Re-incarnation of legacy
Legacy storage are integrated with server virtualization and re-branded as HCI to cater to market demands.
Morphing legacy storage into the HCI framework is a stop-gap solution to address the limitation of HCI.
Challenge and Mission
In the cloud era, HCI offers a great promise as a new IT infrastructure, but its potential is marginalized by the limitation of its current state-of-art. As a result, our mission is to leverage technology developments in industry-standard servers, combine with software-defined infrastructure technologies to develop a new generation of HCI and deliver a powerful enterprise private cloud solution.
Adaptive Hyper-Converged Infrastructure
A software stack that runs on standard storage attached servers to provide an elastic infrastructure which users can define how to best fit and run their enterprise applications.
