Last updated:January 2017

Editor's note

Many factors influence how hyper-converged infrastructure vendors and products will change in 2017. We skipped the crystal balls and tea leaves and asked our experts what they expect to see in the coming year.

SearchConvergedInfratructure's expert contributors have seen new technologies emerge, change and fade away. They're familiar with the general arc technological evolutions take, and they know what organizations are looking for from converged and hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) products.

Organizations want hyper-convergence to simplify workload deployment and management, integrate easily and add important functionality.

The market showed signs of maturing in 2016 with heightened competition, innovation and acquisitions. Experts anticipate seeing all of those things from hyper-converged infrastructure vendors in 2017.
