Leader: Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Hewlett Packard Enterprise launched HPE SimpliVity in 2017 which integrates HPE servers, third-party server virtualization software, data services for storage efficiency functions and the option of software-defined networking through the company’s acquisition of Plexxi. Palo Alto, Calif.-based HPE ranked No. 4 in execution and above average in vision on the Magic Quadrant. The company has expanded hypervisor support and introduced products leveraging HPE’s latest-generation servers, models without hardware-based acceleration and solutions with integrated networking. In large data centers, HPE SimpliVity is often implemented together with HPE Synergy and HPE OneSphere.

Strength: As part of HPE SimpliVity, the company offers GreenLake Flex Capacity for consumption-based pricing of HCI and automated technology refresh management.

Weakness: Competing HCI vendors are actively marketing and winning deals based on their ability to run their software on HPE ProLiant servers, said Gartner. Customers standardized on competing server suppliers cannot use Simplivity as HPE has no server-independent offering.
