Nutanix has been named a market leader in a global report on the hyperconverged market.

The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Hyperconverged Systems 2014 Vendor Assessment outlined the role hyperconverged solutions play in data centers.

It credits Nutanix as a key player in the development and success of the rapidly growing technology with a 52 per cent share of hyperconverged revenue during the first half of 2014.

“Nutanix has been a key player in the emergence of the hyperconverged market and was early to demonstrate demand for the technology. The result has been a leading position in mindshare, as well as market share. The company generated 52 per cent of all global hyperconverged revenue during the first half of 2014, and has clearly been planting the seeds for future growth,” the report said.

IDC research director for storage, Eric Sheppard, said the firm played a crucial role in identifying and capitalising on hyperconverged solutions.

“Nutanix is now taking advantage of its early success and customer knowledge to build new partnerships with key top tier OEMs and to expand the capabilities of its solutions. Such moves should help to ensure the company remains a key contributor to market growth as hyperconverged solutions enter a new phase of rapid geographic and workload expansion."

Placement in the hyperconverged platforms IDC MarketScape assesses market leadership based on both product strategy and business capability.
