There is a constant stream of innovation happening in storage technology, and the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) market is leading the way. According to this report, the HCI market is expected to be worth $17.1 billion by 2023. This projected growth could be put down to the myriad of advantages that HCI offers, including single-pane-of-glass management, reduced rackspace and power which means greener data centres, and improved disaster recovery capabilities to list a few.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is no longer a buzzword. As noted by Justin Warren in his article on Forbes, most HCI vendors now offer HCI as an overall offering and that’s how it should be. The technology is not dead; it has become a natural part of the data storage technology world. Now that it has been transformed into an essential cog in the engine that drives the enterprise data storage world forward, it’s important to recap the true promise of HCI and why it’s now taken so seriously..
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has gone mainstream, yet myths still remain that lead to misconception and confusion even among those that already have various HCI solutions deployed. These are five of the most prevalent myths debunked.
First of all, the acquisition price of HCI solution varies by vendor and often by the brand of hypervisor used in the solution. Secondly, while it can often be the case that purchasing the individual components needed to create a virtualisation infrastructure may be less expensive than purchasing an HCI solution, that is only part of the cost of the solution. The true and total cost of infrastructure goes far beyond the initial purchase.
Hyperconverged infrastructure sales boosted by hybrid IT popularity The converged infrastructure market grew by 19.3 percent year on year to $3.75bn (£2.96bn) during Q1, with Dell Technologies far and away the market leader, according to new IDC research. The market was helped by strong hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) sales – infrastructure that packs networking, compute, storage… Read More
