I prefer to go with OpenStack, considering an HCI and private cloud solution (compiling all infrastructure resources storage, compute nodes, network) also compatible with most devices and solutions.

Open Source HCI Solution based on Proxmox VE + Ceph Storage is a great one with many benefits checkout : and we have been using it for quite some-time and promote it too. Also you can use ProxmoxVE setup as dHCI, means you can scale compute and storage independently.

Why look at HCI when you already have dHci Numble or Alletra solution offering from HPE which has all the features of HCI and many more additional features and benefits. Strongly recommend to evaluate HPE dHci Nimble.

The main value for HCL is centralization and consolidation. 

With an HCI solution you will have Storage, Network, and Compute resources in one box and can be managed from one interface. It is good for entry and mid-range business. easy to deploy easy to manage.
