As we prepare for what 2014 will bring, it’s nice to look back and remember what we accomplished over the course of the past year. VCE is coming off of a terrific 2013, capped by Gartner citing that VCE has the highest revenue of its latest data center hardware integrated infrastructure systems market share report* (with over 50 percent market share).
VCE leads the converged infrastructure market with more than 50% market share
As one of the leading analyst firms, we believe Gartner’s report truly speaks volumes about VCE’s leadership in the market and the company’s sustained success. Due to their growing popularity of integrated infrastructure, Gartner began tracking integrated systems in 2012. The 2013 report solidifies the industry trend toward convergence.
Over the past two years, the market has seen 50 percent year-over-year growth and we don’t see any signs of this slowing down. It reflects what we are seeing and hearing from consumers: they are increasingly aware of the benefits of converged infrastructure and are looking to vendors like VCE to help them improve their data centers. Only one of every twenty dollars spent on IT infrastructure went to integrated systems in 2012, but as the benefits of converged infrastructure become clearer to consumers – better performance, increased optimization and automation, lower cost of IT operations, simplified support – we expect to take a bigger bite out of the greater IT infrastructure pie.
However, our track record – and our many repeat customers – shows that customers have a great amount of trust in our Vblock Systems.
The industry as a whole is exciting. We have a lot of room to grow and many potential customers to reach. But more importantly, we are on to something special here at VCE. We’re not just a company formed by Cisco, EMC and VMware; we’re an infrastructure company in our own right that customers look to for solutions to their IT problems. The new year will present new challenges, but VCE is well positioned to continue its growth. Bring on 2014!
