Modern data centers’ providers are gradually moving away from traditional and multi-vendor IT infrastructures to open, standardized and interchangeable solutions that are based on a software defined approach to managing data center resources. The authors analyze the architectural features, requirements, limitations, hardware and software of hyperconverged infrastructures and their advantages in comparison with traditional and converged architectures deployed in data centers. The authors propose to employ two-level coordination schema to manage compute, storage, network and virtualization subsystems of hyperconverged infrastructure along with the self-management algorithms inside these subsystems.
