Sangfor Technologies Recognized as a Sample Vendor for Hyperconvergence in Gartner® Hype Cycle™ Report 2022

Sangfor Technologies listed as a Sample Vendor for Hyperconvergence technology in the recently published Gartner Hype Cycle for Storage and Data Protection Technologies, 2022 report.[1]

What is the Gartner Hype Cycle Report?

The 2022 Gartner Hype Cycle report assesses 21 of today’s most relevant storage and data protection technologies to address the evolving needs of enterprises. Each technology is rated on their business benefit, market penetration, and maturity level while other key information such as the technology’s drivers, obstacles, user recommendations, and Sample Vendors are provided.

In general, Gartner recommends that "companies should begin with fast-moving technologies that are rated transformational or high in business benefits, and are likely to reach mainstream adoption quickly."

Hyperconvergence in the Hype Cycle Report

Hyperconvergence has the highest market penetration of more than 50% (>50%) with the highest maturity (Mature Mainstream) among technologies rated high in business benefits. We feel this makes hyperconvergence one of today’s leading technology choices for organizations looking to enhance their storage and data protection capabilities based on the recommendation above. Gartner points out that "Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions have reached maturity, experiencing steady year-over-year growth, providing simplicity of management and streamline implementation in the data center and at the edge."

Sangfor is excited to be named as 1 of 7 Sample Vendors in the world for one of the most rapidly maturing and beneficial storage and data protection technologies. We believe the listing is a great testament to the quality of our state-of-the-art HCI product and the thousands of customers it has benefited.

Sangfor Technologies has also been named in the Gartner Magic Quadrant™ for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software for 3 consecutive years since 2019.[2] It is also been recognized in Gartner Peer Insights™ ‘Voice of the Customer’: Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software report for three consecutive years.[3]
