SimpliVity report shows hyperconvergence growing faster than ever

19 May 16

The 2016 State of Hyperconverged Infrastructure Market report, conducted by ActualTech Media and commissioned by SimpliVity, shows that hyperconvergence is the new trend in enterprise infrastructure management.

Hyperconverged infrastructure uses multiple data centre services to virtually conduct an 'appliance form' factor. This, according to the company, results in a less complicated system that reduces costs while increasing virtual workload speeds and improving operational efficiency.

The survey comprised IT professionals in more than 1000 medium and large enterprises, including 124 from Australia and New Zealand.

A reported 60% of Australian and New Zealand companies surveyed plan to use hyperconvergence to boost their infrastructures in the next year, the survey says. Out of these, 44% will invest in it within the next 12 months.

The survey also found that Australia and New Zealand-based companies have five distinct priorities for hyperconvergent investment, which align with global priorities:

  • Operational efficiency improvement
  • Continuous data growth management
  • Data centre consolidation
  • Disaster recovery improvement
  • Process automation and orchestration 

Scott Morris, vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan sales at SimpliVity, says “Australia and New Zealand’s interest in hyperconverged infrastructure has never been greater than it is right now. And SimpliVity is continuing to see increasing numbers of partners and customers who want to be part of this technological revolution.

ActualTech Media’s report shows that the top IT priorities for companies are very closely aligned with the benefits that our customers have told us that they have seen since deploying our hyperconverged solution. Hyperconverged infrastructure is taking on, and displacing, legacy IT solutions.”
