VMware, for the third time, is positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI). In the latest Magic Quadrant, Gartner recognized hyperconverged infrastructure as the critical foundation for a hybrid cloud architecture, as HCI has expanded beyond compute and storage to include the “complete set of software-defined services for compute, storage, networking, security and cloud management.” HCI incorporates all major data center functions, delivering a single, ubiquitous control plane from edge to core to cloud.
We believe this recognition reflects the strength of our software business model combined with the compelling bold vision of our VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) strategy. VCF expands HCI from integrated storage and compute to a full software stack with software-defined networking and advanced management available across the hybrid cloud. VMWare uniquely future-proofs customer HCI investments for a complete infrastructure modernization journey without dead ends.
