HPE shines in IDC Converged Systems tracker, Cisco does not

HP shining but

Proliants are my favorite servers(DL38x), and 3PAR is my favorite storage though the headlines of the article make it sound like HP's numbers are really awesome when in reality they did grow a bunch but from a small base, and I'd wager most of that growth was due to the Simplivity(sp?) acquisition. It's not as if they pulled in another $150M in revenue or something.

I'd say VMware is the real shiner in this report.

I'm still old school I guess no converged anything at this point. I have always been curious to know what the numbers is for converged vs non converged(but still running a hypervisor and shared storage of some kind). Though have never seen such numbers reported.
