Servers are the foundation of IT, the workhorses of the data center, and they're also the lynchpin of the burgeoning hyper-convergence market.

So far this year, the folks at VCE, EMC's hyper-converged infrastructure division, have sung the praises of Dell's FX line of servers, Lenovo has pumped up its ThinkServer to tackle software-defined workloads, and HPE has worked its ProLiant line into an appliance that solution providers call a game-changer.
