Hyper-Converged Hits Mainstream
As software-based hyper-converged providers like Nutanix, VMware and Pivot3 debate who owns the best technology and market strategy, Forrester Research took on the task of scoring the major players and how they stack up against each other.
Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is hitting the mainstream market as customers seek to lower cost and complexity, leverage infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) capabilities and stay ahead as more business-critical applications get certified to run on an HCI stack. Flexible, integrated compute and storage infrastructure is now central to a company's ability to do business in a marketplace with changing customer technology expectations, according to Forrester's new Hyper-Converged Infrastructure, Q3 2018 report.
Cambridge, Mass.-based Forrester researched, analyzed and scored the 11 most significant software-based hyper-converged infrastructure providers in the market.
