Niche Player: Huayun Data Group

China-based Huayun Data Group joined the global HCI market through its acquisition of Maxta this year. The privately held company also launched its flagship HCI offering, ArcherOS, within China in 2019. Huayun Data Group ranks among the bottom of the pack for both execution and vision on the Magic Quadrant.

ArcherOS is based on Maxta’s core HCI and SDS technology integrated with its own technology to provide private and hybrid cloud capabilities. The company also enabled the integration of ArcherOS with other technologies from security to independent software vendor applications via its existing ecosystem of partners. Huayun Data Group intends to follow a dual-brand strategy by utilizing the ArcherOS name in China and retaining the Maxta name outside China. For the cloud use case, ArcherOS/Maxta seeks to bring more public-cloud-like operational efficiency to MSPs and enterprises by enabling independent compute and storage scaling.

Strength: The company offers single-node pricing for its software options making its HCI solutions appealing for SMBs and organizations with small-node edge requirements.

Weakness: Huayun Data Group’s dual-brand strategy may be confusing to customers seeking HCI.
