Converged infrastructure systems market has seen new offerings emerge from large technology vendors to startups, each trying to grab a piece of the fast growing multi-billion dollar market. Each of the vendors offer customizable yet proprietary compute, storage, and networking configurations, combined with their preferred systems and management software stack. This makes it difficult to compare the systems on a price-to-performance scale. Value Prism Consulting, a management consulting firm, was engaged by Dell® Corporation to review and contrast converged infrastructure offerings from four leading vendors based on publicly-available costs and specification data. On a price-to-performance scale, Dell’s Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft CPS Standard was seen as the most cost-effective solution providing high performance and great value.
