Cisco, HPE and Dell lock horns in changing converged markets

James Henderson | Aug. 17, 2016
The three companies have launched new hyper-converged products or expanded existing offerings

For Drake, it also highlights the strong belief these vendors have in their respective advantages vis-à-vis hyper-converged market heavyweights SimpliVity and Nutanix.

“Over time, it’s likely that we’ll see increasingly innovative applications and deployments of hyper-converged infrastructure as technologies and strategies mature,” Drake adds.

“It is, however, also fair to speculate about whether the market for hyper-converged solutions can sustain the current number of providers and the likelihood that we’ll see future consolidation.”

Drake believes the survival of companies, strategies and products usually depends on a range of factors, including corporate stability and business momentum as well as brand strength and reputation.

“In addition, the popularity and ultimate success of individual hyper-converged solutions will be shaped by things such as cost, scalability, time to deploy, ease of use and flexibility - including their ability to work with other hardware and software,” he adds.
