Gartner Drops Cisco, Dell EMC, HPE, Huawei And Red Hat In 2020

Gartner has changed its inclusion criteria for the 2020 HCI software Magic Quadrant to exclude hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS), which led to Cisco, Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Huawei being dropped. Red Hat was also dropped due to narrowing its focus to only three use cases.

To be included in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software, vendors need to provide an integrated software stack; combine virtual machine and software-defined storage resources; virtualize local, internal and direct-attached storage rather than shared networked storage; provide a mechanism to pool internal and direct-attached primary storage across servers into abstracted virtual storage; and develop the storage and data management services integrated in the offering.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant ranks vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision and places them in four categories: Niche Players (low on vision and execution), Visionaries (good vision but low execution), Challengers (good execution but low vision) and Leaders (excelling in both vision and execution). For this particular Magic Quadrant, no vendors were listed as Challengers.
