@reviewer1058013 says "in a converged environment, we can grow compute and storage separately"
This is a key differentiator, IMHO.  It is also the reason I disagree with those who say hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is less expensive. With HCI, in order to upgrade compute capability, I have to also affect storage and possibly networking because they are all in the same box.  With a non-HCI environment, I can upgrade compute without affecting storage by replacing hypervisor hosts but using the same storage, or vice versa.

HCI
Hyper-Converged Infrastructure refers to a system where numerous integrated technologies can be managed within a single system, through one main channel. Typically software-centric, the architecture tightly integrates storage, networking, and virtual machines.
