The 10 Coolest HCI Systems Of 2019 (So Far)
Here are the 10 coolest hyper-converged infrastructure systems in 2019.
Hewlett Packard Enterprises flagship HCI offering, HPE SimpliVity, has robust storage efficiency and data reduction services with always-on global deduplication and compression. The platform leverages HPE servers, the company’s OmniStack software, third-party server virtualization software and hypervisors, as well as an intelligent network fabric stemming from its acquisition of Plexxi. HPE SimpliVity is receiving a shot in the arm with new integration of HPE InfoSight, an artificial intelligence operations platform, giving HPE SimpliVity the ability to predict and prevent infrastructure problems.
The San Jose, Calif.-based infrastructure giant ranks third in global HCI market share at 4.6 percent share as of first-quarter 2019. HPE’s hyper-converged sales reached nearly $84 million in the first quarter, up 37 percent year over year. The company has been creating new hyper-converged partnerships this year with the likes of Ctera Networks and Nutanix in a move to boost its market share.
