Gartner HCI Software-Only Market-Share Methodology

Gartner defines HCI software as a commercially available software product, where software-defined storage, compute virtualization and management tools are either preintegrated or can be integrated with a third-party hypervisor and management tools and can run on commodity hardware.

Gartner’s measurements and tracking of hyperconverged software sales and market share differ from fellow research firm IDC. IDC’s software market-share numbers include hardware sales. While IDC’s software numbers represent the value of all HCI hardware, HCI software and systems infrastructure software sold, Gartner excludes hardware sales when tracking HCI software market share. Some believe Gartner provides a more accurate view of the HCI software market because it measures only software sales and excludes hardware revenue.

Gartner gives revenue credit to the actual HCI software provider. It includes software maintenance or services revenue, but excludes professional or consulting services. Software revenue for perpetual and term-based subscription licenses are included together. Individual hypervisor license revenue is excluded from Gartner’s overall HCI software revenue quarterly tracking.
