As a highlight of the launch event, EasyStack introduced ECS Stack, an innovative cloud-ready hyper-converged infrastructure product, which will be officially launched during the month of July. Chen said, "Cloud computing relative to hyper-converged infrastructure can be thought of as having a smart operating system relative to a mobile phone device. In the next generation roadmap and market play, the development of hyper-converged infrastructure will focus on the all-in-one (AIO) delivery of software and hardware for cloud computing. Supporting multi-cloud services, microservices granularity based upgrading, and being application-oriented will become the three major product features for hyper-converged infrastructure to be successful in the future of enterprise adoption."
