The term hyper-converged cloud can be applied to a public cloud provider using hyper-converged infrastructure, an on-premises hybrid cloud using HCI or even a system that links the virtualization in an enterprise HCI system with a public cloud’s own virtualized servers.
The core principles of HCI are also core to the cloud: the virtualization of resources to virtual machines (VMs). In the case of the enterprise, those VMs are most commonly end-user machines in a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). In the cloud, they are usually virtual storage and file servers, and even virtual production machines.
