Helping you to deliver on-premises infrastructure services with the speed and operational efficiency of the public cloud.
Bringing cloud-like flexibility to on-premise data centers.
Hyperconvergence or hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is a single system that combines separate components of data center infrastructure including software-defined storage, computing, and networking, together into one virtual machine. Hyper-convergence developed out of the converged infrastructure model, which combined disparate data center components into an appliance form factor to minimize compatibility issues and simplify the management of servers, storage systems, and network devices. With HCI, businesses have the capability to run mission-critical applications without the complexity and cost of traditional infrastructure. For organizations that need faster and more reliable storage performance, an HCI platform provides unparalleled benefits.
For businesses looking to move away from legacy systems and traditional IT infrastructure, HCI might be the right fit. Flagship offers in-depth expertise in today’s leading solutions in hyper-convergence and the skills and technical resources necessary to assist you with integrating and customizing these solutions within your existing data center.
Not sure if HCI is right for your business? We can help you make that determination.
Discover the Benefits of Hyperconverged Infrastructure
For many businesses, hyper-convergence offers tremendous value and benefits when compared to traditional data centers. Some of the benefits of a hyper-converged appliance infrastructure include:
Ease of Deployment
With HCI, you only have one HCI vendor that will handle the entire process of HCI implementation and customization
With HCI, you can manage your workloads remotely, in real-time
TCO Cost Efficiency
With HCI, businesses are able to reduce operational costs related to power, cooling, and square footage.
Enhanced Data Protection & Storage Capacity
With HCI, data storage systems and disaster recovery are integral components of the infrastructure, enhancing efficiency for your organization.
Hyperconvergence scale computing simplifies virtual infrastructure, accelerating the deployment of new applications and services.
HCI makes sharing, accessing, and sending data across multiple functions faster.
Flagship’s highly trained and certified sales and technical engineers have proven experience deploying hyper-converged infrastructure solutions that combine multiple IT components into one appliance – helping to free your business from outdated legacy systems and traditional infrastructure.

VMware vSphere and VMware Virtual SAN are the core software technologies that constitute the foundation of VMware’s HCI solutions. vSphere and Virtual SAN are seamlessly integrated with a single layer of software that abstracts compute, storage, and networking resources, delivering hyper-converged infrastructure from a single commodity x86 server hardware platform. Unique to VMware HCI is a hypervisor-centric architecture that not only converges hardware, eliminating the need for purpose-built storage appliances, but also converges the software stack in a single layer.
vSphere delivers essential services for the modern hybrid cloud. The new vSphere has been rearchitected with native Kubernetes to run existing enterprise applications alongside modern containerized applications in a unified manner.
vSAN is enterprise-class, storage virtualization software that, when combined with vSphere, allows you to manage compute and storage with a single platform. With vSAN, you can reduce the cost and complexity of traditional storage and take the easiest path to hyperconverged infrastructure and hybrid cloud.
Enable your virtual cloud network to connect and protect applications across your data center, multi-cloud, bare metal, and container infrastructure. VMware NSX Data Center delivers a complete L2-L7 networking and security virtualization platform — providing the ability to manage the entire network as a single entry from a single pane of glass.
