Hyperconverged Deployments Making Inroads Into the Enterprise

Evaluator Group and the Storage Networking Industry Association Joint Study Provides New Insights Into Enterprise Hyperconverged Adoption

BOULDER, CO and COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwired - Jun 14, 2016) - Evaluator Group and the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) today announced the availability of their joint research study "Hyperconverged Use in the Enterprise." The report reveals:

  • 47% of enterprises surveyed (companies with > 1000 employees) were using or evaluating hyper-converged solutions for infrastructure consolidation
  • 42% of enterprises were using or evaluating hyperconverged solutions for VDI 

The study ranks the other common hyperconverged use cases such as consolidation and data protection and lists the hyperconverged products that enterprises have chosen or were evaluating for these use cases.

"The pressure to improve data center efficiency, especially the effort and time required to deploy new infrastructure, is driving enterprises to consider alternatives, such as hyperconverged solutions," said Eric Slack, Evaluator Group Sr. Analyst. "The enterprises we surveyed are focused on hyperconverged products from their primary suppliers. And while hyperconverged adoption will be a gradual process (enterprises won't be "sweeping the floor"), most of the IT organizations we interviewed were open to eventually using this technology in tier-one applications."

David Dale, SNIA Chairman added, "Enterprise IT is rapidly changing with new technologies and architectures including hyperconverged systems, software defined storage and all-flash arrays. These survey results reinforce the importance of SNIA technology initiatives focused on solid state system use-case workloads and performance, new scale-out storage management, and data protection and security."

Study findings and industry discussion are taking place during the SNIA Data Storage Innovation Conference, San Mateo CA June 13-15. To download a copy of the Executive Summary or subscribe to follow-on research results, visit URL www.evaluatorgroup.com/hyperconverged.
