Gartner: Hyperconverged Integrated Systems to Become Mainstream

According to Gartner the market for hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS) will grow by 79% to reach $2 billion in 2016-- growth propelling such systems towards mainstream use by 2019.

The analyst defines HCIS as "a platform offering shared compute and storage resources, based on software-defined storage, software-defined compute, commodity hardware and a unified management interface. Hyperconverged systems deliver their main value through software tools, commoditising the underlying hardware."

HCIS will be the fastest-growing segment of the overall integrated systems market, one forecast to reach around $5bn (or 24% of the market) within the next 5 years. In addition other market segments are set to face cannibalisation from hyperconverged systems.
