How HCI Is Evolving

Scale Up Scale Out-title

The Demand for Hyperconverged has Skyrocketed

The urgency that businesses must install a hyperconverged infrastructure in their IT environment is growing tremendously. According to Globe News Wire®, the global market for hyperconverged services and products was estimated at $2.7 billion in the year 2020. It is projected to grow to $22.2 billion in the United States by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 34.8% over the analysis period 2020-2027.(1)

Implementation of hyperconverged infrastructure is increasing the most with businesses that need to decrease spending in IT costs, increase their efficiency of data center expansion, reduce their carbon footprint, ease IT operations and management, or establish a more scalable and nimble infrastructure proficient enough to effortlessly fulfill IT requirements.

Major growth drivers for the hyperconverged market include multiple advantages to HCI such as disaster recovery proficiency and a reduction in capital and operational expenditures.

Most large enterprises are deeply embedded in the cloud; there are no reports that large enterprises are transitioning away from the cloud anytime soon. This is why Nfina believes that the vast majority of the growth projected for HCI is coming from mid-size enterprises and small businesses.

Hyperconverged Infrastructure as a Service (HCIaaS)

You may have heard of Storage as a Service (STaaS) or Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), but there is one as-a-service solution that has been on the steady incline in recent years, that solution is Hyperconverged Infrastructure as a Service (HCIaaS).

Traditional HCI merges servers, storage, and network assets into a single hypervisor, providing customers with access to simplified, focused data center management. HCIaaS raises the bar by authorizing data center workers to acquire HCI in a way that guarantees to lower both financial and operational expenses.

Senior analyst Naveen Chhabra at the IT research company Forrester® states, “It basically turns the capital expenditure and one-time investment into an operating expense. In most cases, the vendor will also manage the HCI’s day-to-day operations.”(3) The rise in HCIaaS is possibly propelled more by suppliers noticing a chance to give assets on a subscription groundwork. Principal research director Fred Chagnon, of the IT research company, Info-Tech Research Group says, “HCIaaS combines the HCI product with an outsourced engagement model, providing a capability to procure the necessary infrastructure, as well as have it installed, and operated by a single vendor.”(3) Fundamentally, Hyperconverged as a Service removes the requirement for a company to manage, provision, and troubleshoot its IT infrastructure.
