No matter when you hopped on the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) train, one thing is certain – it hasn’t slowed down. The rate and pace of growth in this space is picking up steam as organizations continue to look for ways to modernize their data center, cut infrastructure expenses and drive innovation.
Mind the gap
The gap between Dell EMC’s HCI systems portfolio and the rest of the industry is widening. IDC recently released its Q1 2019 Worldwide Converged Systems Tracker, and once again, Dell EMC is No. 1 in HCI system sales with 32% share. We’ve held this position for the last eight consecutive quarters. That’s right—two years! According to IDC’s research, we’ve experienced 64% revenue growth year over year, which is out pacing the rest of the industry. What’s more, is that VMware is doing the same as No. 1 in the HCI software category with 41% share.
The common denominator? Dell EMC VxRail. And VxRail is flying by our competitors like a runaway train. In this same IDC tracker, Dell EMC VxRail has taken over the No, 1 spot in hyperconverged systems!
We could not have gotten here without our thousands of customers, who trust us to help solve their business challenges. We hear from our customers every day how VxRail plays an instrumental role in making your business work better. Here are a few things you told us you like most about VxRail:
- Configurability – VxRail is the foundation for data center modernization plus a whole lot more. You can do just about anything with VxRail wherever you are in your IT journey.
- Integrated lifecycle management – VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail makes operating the data center fundamentally simpler by bringing the ease and automation of the public cloud in-house by deploying a standardized and validated network flexible architecture with built in lifecycle automation for the entire cloud infrastructure stack including hardware.
- Serviceability – With VxRail, you get secure remote support, proactive monitoring and parts replacement and built-in knowledge articles.
- Support – You have a single point of support for both the hardware and software with a 95% CSAT score.
On behalf of our entire VxRail family, thank you!
We are beyond excited about this latest news. Since the inception of VxRail just a few short years ago, we have prided ourselves in our ability to help our customers innovate their business faster and easier, across core data centers, at the edge and public clouds.
Our fuel is innovation – taking you to your destination of choice
While some others have started to decelerate, we’re still shoveling more coal on the fire. VxRail, with over a $1B annual run rate, is still the fastest growing HCI system among top 3 product brands. And we don’t plan on putting on the brakes anytime soon as we continue to advance our HCI systems portfolio with enhancements like machine learning based monitoring and analysis with VxRail Analytical Consulting Engine (ACE) that we announced at Dell Technologies World a couple of months ago.
Plus, we are further increasing our leadership position by continuing the innovation behind VxRail, jointly with VMware, to be better together. In core data centers, the majority of our VxRail customers run enterprise applications powered by vSAN. At the edge, we offer a wide range of solutions depending on what the edge means to you. This spans easily managed end-to-end VDI solutions using VxRail and VMware Horizon 7 to VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, which offers a data center-as-a-service at the edge or the core data center. And, for connecting with public clouds, VxRail is the ideal hybrid cloud infrastructure foundation for the Dell Technologies Cloud Platforms with VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail. This is a game changer! VxRail is the only jointly engineered HCI system with VMware Cloud Foundation offering full stack integration and automated SDDC infrastructure deployment. You have a one stop shop with Dell Technologies.
