Re: Netapps = "integrated systems leader" ?

Integrated systems by most definitions (a.k.a reference architectures, or pre-built collections of servers/storage/switches) aren't considered hyperconverged since there are still separate boxes for those functions.

Hyperconverged, again by most definitions, collapses together at a bare minimum the server/storage pieces, typically with easy management. Some go much further than that, others don't.
