Dell Technologies and Nutanix continue to battle for hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) system leadership as worldwide revenue growth slowed down significantly in the second quarter of 2020 even as Hewlett Packard Enterprise made big gains.
The worldwide hyperconverged systems market grew only 1 percent year over year in the second quarter of this year, reaching $1.86 billion, according to new data by research firm IDC. However, in the first quarter of 2020 hyperconverged sales grew 8 percent year over year, while fourth- quarter 2019 HCI sales were up 17 percent.
“The overall converged systems market showed a decline during a difficult second quarter as broader weakness in enterprise buying across server and storage also impacted HCI,” said Paul Maguranis, senior research analyst for infrastructure platforms and technologies at IDC, in a statement.
