Hyperconvergence is an IT framework that combines storage, computing, and networking into a single system in an effort to reduce data center complexity and increase scalability. Hyperconverged platforms include a hypervisor for virtualized computing, software-defined storage, and virtualized networking, and they typically run on standard, off-the-shelf servers. Multiple nodes can be clustered together to create pools of shared compute and storage resources, designed for convenient consumption. Hyperconvergence adds deeper levels of abstraction and greater levels of automation than converged infrastructure.
With the web explosion of the ’90s, infrastructure with server-SAN and storage networks was introduced, featuring independent modules that could be updated or changed without affecting other layers. This infrastructure revolutionized IT departments and has been used ever since. Hyperconverged market share is highly concentrated among Deel, Nutanix, and Cisco.

The growing need for data protection and disaster recovery and reduction in Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX) are major factors driving the growth of the hyper-converged infrastructure market trends. These factors are attributed to the growth of the market as major infrastructure vendors are adopting hybrid and multi-cloud deployments as either backup strategies or data disaster recovery options or as an alternative for on-premises infrastructure. Hyper-convergence infrastructure has gained high traction from the recent past among enterprises to draw its potential to streamline the deployment of new workloads, ease infrastructure management, and optimize infrastructure costs. Hyperconverged infrastructure is designed for a pay-as-you-go cost model and has the ability to scale incrementally which has positively impacted the growth of the market. Business-critical applications that are currently deployed on three-tier IT infrastructure will transition to hyperconverged infrastructure as it offers integrated stack systems, integrated infrastructure systems, and integrated reference architectures.
