With the development of hyperconvergence, new vendor revenue in the worldwide server market increased 6.3% year over year to $15.7 billion in the second quarter of 2017.
Hyperconverged solutions are relatively new to the data storage market with CMS signing its first Hyperconvergence vendor, Scale Computing, in early 2017. This growing market offers users a modern approach to building a datacentre and a huge opportunity for partners looking to be successful in this hyper growth market, which is predicted by Gartner to be worth $5 billion by 2019.
Hyperconverged solutions combine Compute, Virtualisation and Storage into single node-based hardware. Combining single nodes to form a cluster allows users access to highly available, scalable, and cost-effective infrastructure for a variety of needs. With focus on simplicity and flexibility, this new and emerging technology provides IT industry with a new perspective/approach to data storage and system virtualisation.
