Traditionally servers were built-to-task and tied tightly to the application they host. The mindset was more towards dedicated resources for each application as scale-up was the natural intent. However, with virtualization the notion of hyperconverged infrastructure became popular, and the applications tended to be built more on a scale-out premise. Enterprises started to look at provisioning in weeks and days rather than months, and provisioning and automation software took center stage in agile deployment.
The outlook for hyperconverged systems looks promising through 2020. IDC expects more general purpose servers to be replaced during refresh cycles over the next few years.
