Hyper-convergence + backup software = scale-out backup nodes
November 23, 2017 / Chris Evans
Hyper-converged infrastructure with built-in backup software brings scale-out capabilities to provide data protection nodes via pre-configured appliances that can build into clusters For many years, the typical backup deployment model was “build your own”. The customer was expected to design, source and implement the hardware, then install backup software on top. Then came backup appliances, which put all that in one box. Now, the trend towards hyper-converged infrastructure has met with backup and we see the emergence of hyper-converged backup products.
