Dell Technologies has extended the company’s massive hyperconverged market share gap between itself and all competitors, winning one-third of the global market in the fourth quarter of 2019, according to new market research from IDC.
Global revenues from hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) systems reached $2.3bn in the fourth quarter of 2019, representing a 17.2% increase year over year. HCI has now taken over the worldwide converged infrastructure space, according to Greg Macatee, research analyst for Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC.
“Hyperconverged system sales remained robust during the fourth quarter and carried overall converged systems market growth despite annual declines of other product types,” said Macatee in a statement. “The hyperconverged system growth picture was largely consistent across the globe with growth in every region in the low to mid double-digit range as these types of systems continue to provide value to a wide variety of businesses in both hybrid and multicloud environments given their easy-to-deploy and automated software-defined nature.”
