Speaking of momentum, HyperFlex has seen significant traction in what has become a red-hot market. So far, HyperFlex has found its way into more than 2,000 customers, and Brannon said he expects that number to jump significantly. That growth is coming as HyperFlex gains traction in the enterprise, Brannon said.
"We're seeing a lot more uptake in the enterprise as we can power more of those enterprise-critical and heavier workloads. We've got folks running SAP landscapes; MS database in SQL, Oracle. We've even got a few folks running HANA in test-dev on top of HyperFlex," he said.
