Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCIs) have enjoyed dramatic success over the past several years, partly building on the appeal of Converged Infrastructure (CI) solutions. Like CIs, they shorten the timeframe and reduce the effort required to deploy new infrastructures. But HCIs have also expanded their applicability into smaller companies and their deployment for new use cases within the organization.
As HCI technologies mature, we’re seeing their adoption in more enterprise-level companies and in more critical use cases, to a certain extent. We’re also seeing more emphasis by HCI vendors to move ‘up market’ from the small and medium-sized business that have comprised the core of this technology’s installations.
This report seeks to determine just how HCIs fits in enterprise environments by examining where companies are deploying or planning to deploy these products, which applications they’re supporting and what benefits they expect to derive from that deployment. It also explores the expectations of the IT personnel involved in the use or evaluation of these products including where HCI may or may not be an appropriate solution.
Evaluator Group’s “Enterprise HyperConverged Infrastructure Research Study” examines the market, uses cases, drivers, barriers and technology along with the market providers surrounding hybrid cloud for large enterprise users.
We base our findings in this report on data gathered from a proprietary Evaluator Group survey of enterprises using, evaluating and planning to use hyperconverged. It will also feature evidence from interviews with IT end users, managers, architects and administrators charged with managing HCI deployments.
