The hyper-converged infrastructure systems market is expected to reach $42.1 billion, at a CAGR of 24.1% during the forecast period of 2021 to 2028. 

Several organizations are under constant pressure to innovate, making digital transformation a top priority due to the evolving business landscape. HCI solutions help traditional storage and data centers, creating value and cost efficiency through simplified management, consolidated resources, and a platform for building a private cloud. Hyper-converged infrastructure solutions streamline the deployment, management, and scaling of datacenter resources by server and storage resources with intelligent software based on industry-leading software-defined technologies. They also help organizations reduce up-front IT infrastructure expenses, simplify procurement and support, increase data protection, improve performance, and implement fully redundant infrastructures. They overcome the challenges of increasing demands for data access, high power consumption, and remaining flexible. Organizations are investing heavily in HCI systems to reap profits in the highly dynamic and competitive market environment.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Hyper-converged Infrastructure Systems Market

Lockdowns imposed due to COVID-19 have resulted in severe losses to businesses. The outbreak has affected various industries, such as manufacturing, oil & gas, construction, automotive & transportation. The majority of the organizations are restructuring their IT infrastructure and operations. Organizations are also focusing on keeping data safe in their on-premise data centers, streamlining the deployment of new workloads, and enhancing overall business productivity. This has encouraged automation and the adoption of advanced technologies for industry-specific applications, including HCI systems.

Several organizations rely on desktop virtualization environments and focus on services and delivery models to access latent demand and reinforce IT infrastructure, and develop business continuity plans for all their operations. This will increase HCI systems adoption for applications, including virtualizing critical applications, virtualization desktop infrastructure to modernize the data centers for agility, scalability of infrastructure, and cost-efficiency.

Several leading HCI players are also eying this crisis as a new opportunity for restructuring and revisiting their existing strategies and incorporating advanced technologies. For instance, in 2020, VMware, Inc (U.S.) launched the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform HCI Series, which offers simplified installation, deployment, and maintenance and combines hardware, software, and virtualization for a faster time to production and simplified deployment. Due to the rise in remote work policies and reliance on the desktop virtualization environment, the rising focus on digitalization for improving remote access and strengthening the enterprise mobility framework will further boost the market growth post-COVID-19.
