The term "Hyper-Converged" is the biggest scam ever

"Hyper-Converged" infrastructure solutions, like Nutanix, combine compute, storage, and a hypervisor.

"Converged" infrastructure, like a NetApp FlexPod, combines compute, storage, networking, and optionally some sort of application stack (like a hypervisor or a database.)

Which is more converged? The one with networking or the one without?

Maybe we should call the former "hypo-converged" if you need to buy your own switch.
