Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) continues to gain traction in the marketplace. Analyst firm IDC projects that the HCI market will grow by 94 percent by year’s end, from $800 million worldwide in 2015 to more than $1.5 billion in 2016, while the analysts at Gartner forecast a $5 billion market by 2019.
Our new infographic below presents the top reasons that IT leaders are moving their organizations to HCI, which combines compute, networking, virtualization, and storage functions using highly scalable commodity servers.
In the broadest sense, HCI is about simplifying IT implementation and reducing costs to make your workforce more productive. As you’ll see, the infographic digs into specifics about the top reasons that companies have for adopting HCI:
- Hardware infrastructure due for upgrade — When it’s done right, HCI is easy to implement and yields significantly lower total cost of operations (TCO) than legacy hardware.
- Improve efficiency of internal processes — Higher performance and storage capacity mean your people and processes work faster and easier.
- Effective management of business operations and processes — This is especially important when you’re dealing with specialized use cases such as video surveillance.
