“Use Networking to Differentiate Your Hyperconverged System”, outlines how hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) vendors must tightly integrate networking to thrive in the face of increasing competition and more demanding workloads. Specifically, the research highlights how the growing scale of HCIS clusters emphasizes the challenges of expanding workload coverage and diminishes competitive product differentiation. Gartner explains why HCIS vendors should consider networking protocols such as InfiniBand and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) when designing clusters to help address these challenges and add value for buyers.
