Niche Player: Red Hat

Recently acquired by IBM for a whopping $34 billion, Red Hat ranks among the bottom of the pack for both execution and vision on the Magic Quadrant. This year, the company restructured its business organization and built a dedicated marketing function to drive awareness and sales enablement for its HCI solution.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization was released in 2017 and uses the KVM hypervisor and Gluster Storage virtualization. In 2018, Red Hat released Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Cloud built on its Ceph Storage and OpenStack Platform as core components in the offerings. Red Hat has expanded its HCI for Cloud offering to its virtualization offering, which includes integrated deduplication and compression capability via the acquisition of Permabit and a unified life cycle for OpenStack and Ceph Storage technologies.

Strength: The company has a combined OS, virtualization, storage and cloud toolset to manage HCI, leveraging its depth of Linux and open-source software expertise.

Weakness: Red Hat’s low hyperconverged infrastructure market penetration and new parent company may cause IT leaders to be reluctant to consider it.
