What is IT Infrastructure?
Information Technology (IT) infrastructure refers to the components required to manage and operate enterprise-grade IT environments. An IT infrastructure can be implemented using cloud computing or native organizational components.
The elements making up an IT infrastructure include hardware, software, internet components, network components, data storage, and an Operating System (OS).

Types of IT Infrastructure
A traditional IT infrastructure is composed of physical hardware which is connected to a network by means of a remote server. The server is usually housed on location, giving anyone with access to the hardware the ability to view and manage the data and applications housed on the server.
Expanding this type of infrastructure requires the purchase of additional hardware and upgrades. This can be quite a blow to the company finances, especially if the structured cabling was not installed to allow for easy hardware expansion.
Expanding this type of infrastructure can usually be done on demand without the need to purchase and upgrade additional hardware.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI)
A hyperconverged IT infrastructure (HCI) is a software-defined and unified system, neatly combining the elements of traditional datacenters. An HCI runs off of commercial off-the-shelf servers.
The elements of these servers are then converged using a hypervisor. A hypervisor refers to the software which packages together the elements of commercial off-the-shelf servers.
Think of a hyperconverged infrastructure as a collection of servers at multiple locations, with resources packaged together for on-demand use. When hardware fails, the hypervisor automatically reassigns hardware from other servers in the fleet to pick up the slack.
This makes a hyperconverged infrastructure extremely stable for application hosting. Expanding your resources can be done from your hypervisor dashboard, without the need to purchase or configure additional hardware.
