Computational systems seek to address the limitations of hyper-converged infrastructure systems, in which users can only scale compute and storage by purchasing additional nodes. These newer technologies are designed to help organizations maximize the value of their compute and storage hardware spending, said Randy Kerns, a storage analyst at Evaluator Group, based in Boulder, Colo.
“You’re going to see some of these products implemented with apps that are data-intensive and that need some degree of data manipulation” to condition data for AI and machine learning, Kerns said.
