Hyperconverged infrastructure is being adopted at an increasingly rapid pace by end users all across the globe. With the amount of companies having adopted hyperconvergence increasing by fifty-four percent (54%) over the past year, and with eighty-eight percent (88%) of those who haven’t already adopted planning to adopt hyperconverged infrastructure within the next two years, customers are clearly excited about the benefits of the technology.
End users aren’t the only ones excited about the emergence of hyperconverged infrastructure as a big-time player in the IT infrastructure industry. Partners, too, are seeing the advantages of hyperconverged infrastructure and noticing the increased interest in the technology from prospects. In its recent survey of worldwide channel professionals, ActualTech Media found that seventy-two percent (72%) of channel partners are recommending and/or reselling hyperconverged solutions to end users, illustrating the increasing commonality of use cases hyperconverged infrastructure is appropriate for as well as the growing popularity of hyperconverged solutions among channel partners and end users alike. The channel’s interest in recommending hyperconverged solutions isn’t projected to slow, either, as over one-third of channel members that aren’t currently reselling or recommending hyperconverged infrastructure plan on doing so within the next two years.
There are many features that can differentiate hyperconverged offerings from one another for both partners and end users. The most important aspects when considering a vendor they want to partner with to both those currently offering and those planning to offer hyperconverged are technical support, ease of deployment, and the cost of the solution in question.

Almost three-fourths of resellers surveyed in ActualTech Media’s report are already selling or recommending hyperconvergence, but there is still room for more partners to join the hyperconverged train before it leaves the station.
