back to article OK, hyperconverged is the new black. But who's winning at it?

A consultancy reports that Nutanix, Simplivity and VMware lead the SDS/HCI market, while Microsoft, Cisco and HPE lag behind. Interesting... now that HPE has bought SimpliVity it must be a top 2 player and could be numero uno (it is). But lead in what? Certainly not in sales units or revenues; this is mainly a product …

    We love the fact that Chris has covered the availability of our new report.

    Just want to highlight that all of our consultants are voluntary for the benefit of the community. The described "box-ticking exercise" is actually comprised of in-depth capability reviews between vendor and consultant, time-intense data collection, often undocumented features and sensitive "rating" discussions. As our comparisons are "always online" this repeats with every product update and involves daily processing of "open community curation" that we enable. Plus, the comparisons will ALWAYS be free to access.

      in-depth capability reviews between vendor and consultant?

      Not true. Vendors who choose not to participate in the "box-ticking exercise" are still included with random answers. Not an HCI vendor, but been WhatMatrixed before.
