MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, SGI (NASDAQ:SGI), a global leader in high-performance solutions for compute, data analytics and data management, announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Visionaries" quadrant of the October 2016 Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems.
SGI believes the move to the "Visionaries" quadrant, since last year’s position within “Niche Players,” represents a progression of SGI’s completeness of vision. According to Gartner, "'Visionaries' are typically vendors that are focusing on strong innovation and product differentiation, but are smaller vendors with limited reach or achievement to date, or larger vendors with innovation programs that are still unproven.”
Integrated systems are defined by Gartner as "combinations of server, storage and network infrastructure, sold with management software that facilitates the provisioning and management of the combined unit."
The report notes that, "the integrated system market is outgrowing other data center segments, but the growth has been stabilized. According to Gartner statistics (see 'Market Share Analysis: Data Center Hardware Integrated Systems, Worldwide, 2015'), in 2015, integrated system sales grew 11.2% over 2014, totaling $9.6 billion, constituting approximately 5.6% of all server, external controller-based storage and data center networking spend by the end of 2015.”
