Hyperconverged System Market Hits $821 Million In Q2 2020
The data center hyperconverged system market wasn’t significantly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic in the second quarter of 2020 as worldwide sales remained flat on a year-over-year basis, according to new data from IT research firm Gartner.
Worldwide revenue from hyperconverged integrated systems hit $821 million in the second quarter, representing flat annual growth. There wasn’t a decline in hyperconverged systems due to an increase in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments to support work-from-home initiatives stemming from the coronavirus pandemic, Gartner said.
Gartner defines the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market as an HCI platform offering with shared compute and storage resources based on software-defined storage, software-defined compute, commodity hardware, a unified management interface and direct-attached storage. For Gartner’s HCIS second-quarter 2020 market report, the brand selling the hyperconverged appliance received the revenue credit, not the software brand.
