Techopedia Explains Converged Infrastructure

Converged infrastructure suites offer products and services in an aggregated solution but are often criticized as a way for vendors to lock in a company's business, as upgrades are obtainable only through a primary vendor and/or its partners.

Converged infrastructure typically consists of several computing resources that are preconfigured, pretested and designed specifically around a business/IT use case. These computing resources may include servers, storage, software, network and other IT/computing products and services.
