Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), once a solution for small and mid-sized companies, remote offices or VDI, has matured to become an indispensable part of the overall data center mix for even the largest enterprises. Evaluator Group’s new research study, “Hyperconverged in the Enterprise 2020”, shows that databases, typically the most critical applications in the data center, have become the #1 use case for HCI.
In the fourth year of this Evaluator Group Study, it is clear that using HCI for a range of applications has become the rule, not the exception. Over the past three years we have seen HCI evolve from a solution companies are evaluating to one that over 70% have in production or have a deployment pending (see figure below).
As this technology continues to evolve, there is increased demand for improved management functionality, integrated data protection and integrated disaster recovery features. HCI has also become a primary on-premises solution for hybrid cloud infrastructures.
This year’s study shows this evolution by comparing results from past years, revealing insights into where and why HCI is being adopted, what its strengths and weaknesses are and what users expect from this technology moving forward. We explored which advanced technology features were most desired and what trends are for containers / Kubernetes, edge computing, integrated backup functionality and public/private/hybrid cloud connectivity.
