IDC Data Shows VMware vSAN with Over 41% Market Share

In the most recent quarter, Q1 2019, VMware vSAN led the market in share based on systems running HCI software, an astounding 66.3% growth. During the quarter, the overall market grew at an impressive 46.7% rate, but vSAN blew past that—growing more than 40% faster than the market.

Through that growth, vSAN captured additional market share and continues to lead the HCI market with 41.1% share. This market share is composed of vSAN sold on ReadyNode servers, jointly certified servers by VMware ReadyLabs and the OEM server partner, and Dell EMC VxRail, a jointly-engineered, turnkey HCI appliance.

With over 20,000 customers, vSAN has helped IT organizations of all sizes across all industries evolve to meet their business challenges. Here are a few stories showing how vSAN has fueled digital transformation.

Angel Medflight Accelerates IT Operations

IDC Hyperconverged

“Without VMware, I don’t think we would have the uptime or the reliability to be able to perform what we do on a global scale and do what we do best – save patient lives.” — Paul Green, CIO, Angel Medflight

  • Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services is a full-service medical transportation provider of air ambulance, ground ambulance and commercial medical escort for critically ill and injured patients.
  • They recently were in need of an infrastructure refresh, as slow IT systems were causing unacceptable delays and affecting operations.
  • By adopting VMware HCI, vSphere 6.7 and vSAN 6.7, they experienced a significant performance increase, reducing time spent on storage operations by 40%.

 

William Hill Increases IT Agility and Efficiency

“vSAN has worked astonishingly quick. Deduplication and compression rates are at 240%. This will have a huge impact on the business.” — Ben Fairclough, Infrastructure Architect, William Hill

  • William Hill is a leading player in the fast-moving, highly competitive global gaming market, based in the United Kingdom. While they wanted to improve how they deliver new services – time to market is critical – the business must also control costs and maintain high levels of security.
  • William Hill’s traditional infrastructure approach – blade chassis and storage arrays, was failing to support business agility.
  • During a Proof of Concept, “the VMware vSAN solution proved to be 30% faster to build, deploy and optimize than the competitor, and with deduplication and compression, and there was a 1.5x di­fference on VMware.”

 

Cubic Mission Solutions Reduces Weight of Edge Computing Solutions by Over 90%

IDC Hyperconverged

“We wanted a virtualized storage solution that would allow the military to reduce equipment weight and the cost of their missions by using our small form-factor servers for their field storage needs, but it had to be absolutely reliable and performant under battlefield conditions.” — Tom Lynott, Director of Software Architecture, Cubic Mission Solutions

  • Cubic Mission Solutions helps the U.S. military and its allies get fast access to information to coordinate and execute their missions by providing secure communications and wireless solutions in a small form factor that can be easily deployed under any conditions.
  • “The lighter transportation weight significantly reduces fuel costs, and we’re saving our customers hundreds of thousands of dollars in redundant storage arrays that they no longer have to purchase.”
