July 23, 2019 / Paul Korzeniowski
As HCI gained traction among large organizations, VMware became a leading supplier. Now, the HCI market is shifting toward newer technologies, such as the public cloud, edge computing and various co-microprocessors. VMware must adjust to remain on its perch. Hyper-converged infrastructure gained popularity because it provides agility and flexibility. HCI systems bundle server, storage, network and virtualization features into one device, which eases deployment and simplifies scalability. Public cloud has received a lot of attention because of the simplicity in getting these services up and running," said Christian Perry, a research manager at 451 Research, based out of Boston.
