What is a Hyperconverged Infrastructure and how does Galileo support it?

Q:  What is a Hyperconverged Infrastructure and how does Galileo support it?

A:  Hyperconverged Infrastructure is an IT framework that combines compute (virtualization), storage and networking into a single system in an effort to reduce data center complexity and increase scalability.  Galileo supports Hyperconverged infrastructures such as Nutanix, NETAPP HCI and DELL EMC VxRail.  Galileo is able to monitor the compute for all of these environments.  With the Nutanix Agent, we will also provide stats around storage.  See comparison below and also please check out the FAQ links below for additional details on Nutanix, NetAPP HCI and VxRail.  

Hyperconverged appliance  includes compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources in a single device.
