Converged Systems Market Share Q1 2018
Organizations around the globe are increasing their investment in data center technologies that eliminate inefficient silos and support business-centric decisions rather than infrastructure-centric decisions, according to research firm IDC's first quarter 2018 market share data report.
The worldwide converged systems market increased sales by 20 percent year over year to $3.2 billion during the first quarter of this year. The increase spending on converged solutions was driven by businesses seeking to "reduce the complexity of data center infrastructure and allow IT teams to focus on high-value business projects," said Eric Sheppard, research vice president for server and storage infrastructure at IDC, in a statement.
Dell EMC, VMware, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Nutanix and Cisco led the converged market which is on pace for a record sales year.
