With composable infrastructure, resources are logically pooled so that administrators don't have to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application. Your IT administrators need not be concerned with the physical location of infrastructure components.
The software's developer defines the application's requirements for physical infrastructure using policies and service profiles with the software API calling to compose the infrastructure it needs to run on bare metal, as a virtual machine (VM) or in a container. When the software application requests infrastructure to run, available services are located through an automated discovery process and resources are allocated on demand. When the infrastructure resource is no longer required, it is re-appropriated so it can be allocated to another application that needs it.
The goal of a composable infrastructure is to allow an enterprise data center to use its own physical infrastructure in a more cost-effective manner by reducing waste and the amount of time it takes to deploy a new application. The concept of pooling physical infrastructure resources and building infrastructure logically is supported by the growing popularity of software-defined networking (SDN), object storage, converged infrastructure and DevOps.
HPE Synergy, a powerful software-defined solution, enables you to compose fluid pools of physical and virtual compute, storage, and fabric resources into any configuration for any application.

Hyperconverged is software-defined with tightly-integrated compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources. A stark contrast from the traditional converged infrastructure, where each of the resources is typically handled by a discrete component that serves a singular purpose.
Hyperconverged platforms include a hypervisor for virtualized computing, software-defined storage, and virtualized networking, and they typically run on standard, off-the-shelf servers. Nodes can be clustered together to create pools of shared compute and storage resources, designed for efficient use.
For IT leaders who are embarking on data center modernization projects, hyperconvergence can provide the agility of public cloud infrastructure without relinquishing control of hardware on their own premises.
HPE SimpliVity is an enterprise-grade hyperconverged platform that speeds application performance, improves efficiency and resiliency, and restores VMs in Seconds.

Traditional or converged infrastructure is a standalone set of servers which involves a preconfigured package of software and hardware in a single system for simplified management. With converged infrastructure, the compute, storage, and networking components are usually separate components. It means optimizing infrastructure for traditional and Hybrid IT workloads while maintaining cost, flexibility and operational simplicity. The servers are usually standard or high compute rack mounted servers, and also blade servers.
