Leader: Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's primary hyper-converged offering is HPE SimpliVity, which began shipping after the company's acquisition of HCI specialist SimpliVity last year. Since completing the purchase, HPE has doubled the number of SimpliVity customers to more than 2,000 and released an all-flash ProLiant DL380 configuration. The SimpliVity offering is now driving 80 percent of the company's HCI revenue. HPE SimpliVity, managed by VMware vCenter, is based on a software-defined scale-out storage architecture that can scale from a single node to eight clustered nodes plus an additional 16 network-only nodes. HPE offers 25 preconfigured hardware SKUs for the SimpliVity 380 product, with prices starting at $26,000.
HPE is ranked No. 4 in execution and No. 5 in vision on the Magic Quadrant.
