The Global Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Market size is expected to reach $27 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 33.2% CAGR during the forecast period. Hyper-converged infrastructure assures simplified and flexible solutions compared to the legacy ones. The integration of storage systems, servers, and networking switches can be managed under a single system, throughout all instances of a hyper-converged infrastructure. The in-built management functionalities ensure convenience in usability, and software-defined storage has a great potential to yield better scalability and resource efficiency. Also, organizations can start at a smaller scale and expand their resources as and when required. HCI vendors promote potential cost savings in aspects like IT labor; data center power and space; and avoidance of licensed software including backup or disaster recovery tools.
Hyper-converged technology has gained momentum in the early stages of development because of its ability to provide virtual desktops. With the ever-increasing digital data and diversified sources, companies are moving towards high-performance, alongside a linear scaling architecture that is the primary focus of hyper-converged infrastructure. As the hyper-converged architecture has grown from traditional server workloads such as web servers, regular software, research & development to mission critical workloads such as SAP, SQL, and Oracle, the industry has achieved high adoption rates that influence market growth positively.
The need for scalable infrastructure with increasing demand for architectures, which can manage heavy workloads, like business analytics and big data tools, are some of the key drivers in the growth of the global hyper-converged infrastructure market. Major business leaders push companies to embrace software-centric architecture that lets them incorporate, process, and store in a single suite. This encouraged leading virtualization providers to move towards hybrid cloud solutions to help their customers migrate transactional workloads to the public cloud and execute heavy workloads, typically mission-critical on-premise.
