Hyperconverged Platforms Customer Research

The Hyperconverged Platforms Customer Research addresses hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors’ customer-centric questions, drilling down into key categories such as adoption and budget, purchase drivers, workloads and attributes, purchase patterns, and vendor selection. Although the report is HCI-centric, TBR also researches the answers to questions related to software and services, such as what types of security customers desire to attach to their HCI purchases and what additional services are desired to make an HCI purchase complete.
