In 2019, it was projected that by 2023, the number of applications
running in the data center and edge locations increases by 300%.1
A recent projection estimates the integrated system market is
valued at $15.7B, with a five-year CAGR of 9.3% by 2023.2
As organizations across all industries evolve to stay competitive, market
forecasts like these are proving accurate, with IT management – across the
datacenter core, edge and cloud - being transformed by hyperconvergence
technology to provide a competitive advantage.
Hyperconvergence was forged from the concept of converged infrastructure,
which sought to simplify data center management by combining traditional
systems such as computing and storage into a single, prebuilt solution.3
Rather than simply combining, however, hyperconvergence represents a
paradigm shift in both technology and philosophy—and its ongoing evolution
is redefining what’s possible for organizations of all shapes and sizes.
Already, forward-thinking IT and business leaders are applying hyperconvergence
technology to an entirely new set of use cases and boldly pursuing the
hyperpossible. We call these individuals HCI Innovators, and they are leading
the IT modernization charge for their respective organizations.
