In 2001, VMware started a revolution. By virtualizing x86 servers, they changed IT service delivery. But the rest of the IT infrastructure in the data center has not kept up. Hyperconverged infrastructure addresses the cost and complexity of legacy infrastructure and is one of the fastest growing segments in the $107B IT infrastructure market.
The 2016 State of Hyperconverged infrastructure Market report found that hyperconverged infrastructure can drive significant business, operational, and financial benefits.
Convergence has evolved from the packaging of existing components to the convergence of servers,
networking, and storage. Modern solutions go further and hyperconverge all IT infrastructure and data services for virtualized workloads.
