HPE a Leader for 3 Consecutive Years in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Echo - Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure_Blog_shutterstock_452300692.jpgFor the third year in a row, HPE has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure. HPE Storage Marketing Vice President Sandeep Singh shares the new report in his recent blog, noting that HPE continues to streamline IT operations for a variety of workloads and use cases.

The Gartner report states that: “Driven by increased HCI scalability and management functionality, by 2023, 70% of enterprises will be running some form of HCI (i.e., appliance, software, cloud-tethered), up from less than 30% in 2019.”[1] We believe the findings are further validation of HPE’s vision to redefine the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) experience from software-defined to AI-driven.

More customers than ever are benefiting from the simplicity and hyper-efficiency of the HPE SimpliVity platform. And now, armed with the power of global intelligence with predictive analytics and support automation, those IT organizations benefit from an end-to-end HCI experience that transforms their datacenters. HPE InfoSight brings simplified, AI-driven operations to the hybrid cloud world, with features including automated wellness alerts, historical capacity utilization trends, physical capacity forecasts for each hyperconverged cluster, and virtual machine (VM) resource consumption reports.
