NetApp HCI is a turnkey, compute and storage solution based on software that runs the SolidFire scale-out all-flash arrays. Like other hyperconverged infrastructure appliances, the NetApp HCI pools the flash capacity on each node, providing storage to VMs running on nodes in the cluster. It runs on industry-standard Intel x86 server hardware and commodity storage devices, but has a disaggregated architecture that separates storage and compute resources into separate nodes, allowing for a more efficient configuration and more granular expansion than most other HCI solutions.

There are over a dozen vendors marketing HCI appliances, besides NetApp. Competitive solutions include Nutanix, Cisco HyperFlex, HPE SimpliVity and Dell EMC VxRail, among others. These and the other leading products are included in the Evaluator Group Research Hyperconverged comparison matrix and associated Product Briefs, Analyses and Evaluation Guide.
