- HPE’s industry-leading hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) technology gains market share
- Enables IT agility and operational simplicity for customers
In this 2-Part Series, HPE Vice President of Storage Marketing, Sandeep Singh, shares how HPE is uniquely accelerating growth in HCI by delivering innovation and choice for organizations
The numbers are in and its clear HPE’s HCI strategy is striking a chord in the market. I’m excited to share that HPE has outpaced the industry as shown in the latest IDC Hyperconverged Systems market share data1. It is as clear as day that HPE continues to deliver our customers an industry-leading portfolio of HCI solutions. In a quarter where the industry remained flat and other market leaders saw their revenue fall, HPE made big gains and grew 53.5% YoY.
We’re grateful for our partners and customers who entrust their critical infrastructure to HPE and make this growth possible. We love the passion they have for HPE as it underscores our commitment to innovation and delivering great outcomes – outcomes that are perfectly captured in this article from Steve Burke at CRN. Now more than ever, our customers are needing IT agility and operational simplicity, and look to HCI so they can be more responsive to their businesses and accelerate what’s next.
But there’s no one size fits all. A hammer alone can’t build a house – and there’s no one HCI solution that can run every application. Organizations need the right tool for the job, and that’s why our strategy is to be the ideal partner bringing market-leading HPE innovation along with partner solutions to deliver the right HCI for the use case whether its HPE Simplivity, HPE ProLiant DX with Nutanix or HPE vSAN Ready Nodes. It’s the power to choose what’s right for you.
We are also far from standing still. As we look forward, our customers are asking us for more. They love HCI as they see the opportunity to simplify, and they want to bring the HCI experience to all of their application workloads, including business-critical apps and mixed workloads. And so, in Part 2 of this blog series, we’re also excited to share how we’re leading the market in the expansion of the HCI category – expansion that takes HCI further than ever before.
