This IDC study presents market size and forecast information for the worldwide hyperconverged systems market from 2013 to 2019. Hyperconverged systems are an emerging technology that natively collapse core storage, compute, and storage networking functions into a single software solution or appliance. This study represents IDC's initial forecast for this market.
