Trey Layton

SVP & Chief Technology Officer, Converged Platforms and Solutions Division at Dell EMC

IDC’s 4Q2016 Worldwide Quarterly Converged Systems Tracker has once again recognized Dell Technologies as #1 in the total converged systems market in terms of revenue, units shipped and new capacity shipments. In particular, Dell EMC leads the Integrated Infrastructure Systems segment with a 73% market share up six percentage points from the 67% in 4Q15. This IDC Tracker also confirmed our phenomenal growth in hyper-converged systems revenue, which was up 206% (Y/Y) during the fourth quarter of 2016. According to IDC, Dell Technologies captured 26.9% share of the overall Converged Systems (CS) revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 and 28.4% share of the calendar year revenue. We are clearly a leader in this market.

At Citrix Summit this week, Dell announced expansion of its hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with Dell EMC VxRail Appliance 4.0 Solution for Citrix XenDesktop. VxRail Appliances, including models based on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, have rapidly forged a leadership position in the exploding hyper-converged marketplace. VxRail configure-to-order hardware can address virtually any data center use case including those demanding GPU hardware (perfect for graphics intensive virtual desktops), dense storage and/or high performance computing options.

With this announcement, customers can now select either Citrix XenDesktop or VMware Horizon solutions on VxRail. The VxRail with VMware Horizon solution was made available in October, and is enjoying considerable success. Subsequently, Enterprise Strategy Group released a whitepaper discussing how Hyper-converged Infrastructure Shrinks Complexity and Cost for VDI.

Trey Layton

SVP & Chief Technology Officer, Converged Platforms and Solutions Division at Dell EMC

Today we announced the inclusion of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers into our hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio (HCI). Incorporating the world’s number one server platform into our already market leading portfolio is testament to our vision of Dell EMC being stronger, and better together. We have used the combined power of the two companies to vertically integrate all the critical ingredients of the hyper-converged infrastructure stack, from hyper-converged software to the latest innovations in x86 hardware in order to deliver increased choice, wider use cases, lower entry price points, and improved all-flash economics for our customers. There could be no better validation of how Dell EMC is helping customers move forward by incorporating the technology they want and need to become more agile, flexible and competitive.

Dell EMC Integrated Systems Recognized as Market Leader in Gartner MQ for Third Year in a Row!

Trey Layton

SVP & Chief Technology Officer, Converged Platforms and Solutions Division at Dell EMC

Integrated systems based on converged and hyper-converged infrastructure have come a long way in a few short years. There are now instances of these systems spanning everything from appliances designed to be deployed primarily in remote offices with minimal IT intervention to full blown block systems running mission critical workloads in data centers made up of thousands of nodes.

Today, as it did in 2015 and 2014, the Gartner Magic Quadrant report on Integrated Systems clearly positions EMC, now Dell EMC, as a leader in the category because of its combined vision and execution score. We have played a critical role in making it possible to deploy converged (Vblock and VxBlock Systems) and hyper-converged (VxRack Systems and VxRail Appliances) infrastructure throughout the enterprise.
