silconANGLE, July 28th 2017

"The term 'Hyperconverged Infrastructure,' commonly called HCI, may bring to mind big metal boxes and hardware stacks. But in fact the hardware is the least important ingredient in integrated systems. The software layer - particularly, software-defined storage - is where differentiation occurs.

Gartner Inc. researchers say that HCI is the fastest-growing segment of the integrated systems market. In fact, it has predicted that the HCI market will reach nearly $5 billion and make up 24 percent of integrated systems sales by 2019. Market leaders like Dell EMC and Nutanix Inc. are increasingly calling attention to HCI's software layer and its place in multi-cloud..."

That hard reality was broached by Google's Dave Rensin during a panel discussion on innovation in the digital age at a Rackspace roadshow in New York. Rensin, who heads Google's customer reliability engineering team, should know a thing or two about this subject: He helps large enterprises shift to Google Cloud Platform and more modern IT practices..."
