  • Advancements already push the future of HCI in surprising directions

    With a technology as new as hyper-converged infrastructure, it seems odd to be talking about the likelihood of significant changes in its development. Still, the future of HCI is beginning to take shape in ways that are more than mere incremental adjustments. Change is on its way -- and it looks like it's in a hurry.

    How can it be that the next wave of HCI innovation is already rolling in? Are the standard HCI product offerings already about to be overtaken?

    The cover story in this issue of Modern Infrastructure looks at these questions, examining how container-driven bundles and pay-as-you-go options could change how the future of HCI takes shape. If such innovations don't supplant the standard HCI appliance business model, they may at least create fresh approaches to HCI delivery and support.

    HCI has won early acceptance more quickly that many predicted, and vendors sense a big opportunity ahead. To capitalize, they are looking to address some of the key objections potential buyers raise. Greater flexibility in how HCI is configured and sold could be welcome news to IT organizations put off by the current options. And the ability to pay for what's being used as opposed to what's built into a particular appliance could change the minds of some skeptical decision-makers.

    Startups in the still-young market are looking to distinguish themselves by modeling their offerings on cloud services and incorporating container technologies. Vendors seen as the established players in the market may already be looking over their shoulders.
