We have great news to share at SGI! Gartner, Inc. recently announced that SGI is positioned in the “Niche Players” quadrant of the August 2015 Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems. The Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace for a specific time period. It depicts Gartner’s analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by Gartner. In this case, an Integrated System is a combination of server, storage and network infrastructure sold with management software for the combined unit. Gartner included SGI among the 19 vendors evaluated in this Magic Quadrant.
This is an exciting time for SGI as we gain traction on the enterprise side of Integrated Systems. The report notes that “integrated system sales grew 30.4% over 2013, totaling $8.7 billion and constituting approximately 10% of all server, external controller-based storage and data center networking spend by the end of 2014.” SGI will continue to develop innovative solutions for HPC customers, while working with new enterprise customers to apply the lessons learned in HPC. As data becomes more complex, SGI’s expertise can help customers solve challenging problems.
SGI is proud to be a part of the prestigious Gartner Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems. This recognition as a niche player further proves our commitment to our customers in both HPC and enterprise markets.
