VMware: A Leader in the Rapidly Growing Hyper-Converged Marketplace

What is hyper-converged infrastructure and who is a leader you can count on?

Hyper-converged infrastructure reduces IT costs and management complexity while achieving breakthrough performance. Count on VMware, a leader in hyper-converged software with vSphere, Virtual SAN and vCenter Server, to continue the winning trend:

#1 in customer adoption, #1 in units deployed, and #1 in revenue growth.

Ongoing innovations include an even more robust set of solutions with Virtual SAN 6.2, expanded Virtual SAN Ready Node offerings, and VCE VxRail Appliance family announced this month.

Hyper-converged infrastructure eliminates the separate hardware silos that exist today for compute, storage, and networking. And we are seeing tremendous growth for Virtual SAN, which is core to our VMware Hyper-Converged Software (HCS) strategy:

  • 3,000 customers, adding ~500 per quarter
  • 20,000 units / CPU in Q4 alone
  • ~200% YoY revenue growth in Q4

The new VxRail appliances are jointly engineered, turnkey hyper-converged infrastructure appliances that are fully integrated with the best-of-breed VMware HCS and EMC’s rich data services and leading systems management capabilities. This addition to the broadest portfolio of HCI consumption options is exciting for partners because it:

  • Creates exciting new opportunities to sell into markets including enterprise core and edge, remote office, test and dev, and more price-sensitive Federal, state and local government, and higher education customers
  • Delivers flexibility, configurability, and simplicity for customers at a competitive price point
  • Leverages prior customer investments on both VCE Vblock and VMware
  • Provides a new vehicle with which partners can upsell or cross sell advanced SDDC offerings such as VMware NSX, vRealize Automation, Horizon and Horizon Air Hybrid Mode

VMware Hyper-Converged Software is positioned for ongoing leadership and enables partners to achieve success in the transformative HCI market. Learn more about Virtual SAN and VxRail Appliances. To get started, contact your Partner Sales Manager.
