  7. {pve} is a virtualization platform that tightly integrates compute,
  8. storage and networking resources, manages highly available clusters,
  9. backup/restore as well as disaster recovery. All components are
  10. software-defined and compatible with one another.
  11. Therefore it is possible to administrate them like a single system via
  12. the centralized web management interface. These capabilities make
  13. {pve} an ideal choice to deploy and manage an open source

  15. Benefits of a Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) with {pve}
  16. -------------------------------------------------------------
  17. A hyper-converged infrastructure is especially useful for deployments
  18. in which a high infrastructure demand meets a low administration
  19. budget, for distributed setups such as remote and branch office
  20. environments or for virtual private and public clouds.
  21. HCI provides the following advantages:
  22. - Scalability: seamless expansion of compute, network and storage
  23. devices (i.e. scale up servers and storage quickly and independently
  24. from each other).
  25. - Low cost: {pve} is open source and integrates all components you
  26. need such as compute, storage, networking, backup, and management
  27. center. It can replace an expensive compute/storage infrastructure.
  28. - Data protection and efficiency: services such as backup and disaster
  29. recovery are integrated.
  30. - Simplicity: easy configuration and centralized administration.
  31. - Open Source: No vendor lock-in.
