Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) - Truth I happened to just stumble upon a few marketing oriented whitepapers from VMWare today (odd use of my time). All three were centered around Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI). At Bloomberg, we run VMWare and OpenStack clusters. Our OpenStack clusters are currently fully Hyper-Converged. I have even given talks on them http://lambdastack.io/videos/openstack-austin/. If you look at the video and the presentation you will see why we no longer believe in this model for us.
