Enough Is Enough

Chuck Hollis, chief strategist for VMware's storage and availability business, has had about enough of what he considers "misleading" claims being spread by Nutanix and other startups in the hyper-converged infrastructure market.

Hollis, in a recent blog post, didn't name the other hyper-converged vendors, so it's safe to assume that he's primarily talking about Nutanix, which hasn't been shy about its early success. Nutanix leads the global hyperconverged market after generating 52 percent of its overall revenue during the first half of 2014, IDC said in January.
