Gartner, in its first-ever Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems report, a copy of which was reviewed by CRN, estimated the market for integrated systems, which includes single-vendor and multi-vendor converged infrastructures and hyper-converged infrastructures, will grow more than 50 percent in 2014 over 2013 to reach $6 billion.

Gartner defines "integrated systems" as "combinations of server, storage and network infrastructure, sold with management software that facilitates the provisioning and management of the combined unit."
