Named a contender among the 11 providers that matter most across global hyperconverged infrastructure.

SmartX today announced that it has been named a contender in The Forrester Wave™: Hyperconverged Infrastructure, Q4 2023, published by Forrester Research, Inc. The report identified the most significant 11 providers and evaluated them against 36 criteria. This is SmartX’s debut in the Forrester HCI wave since the report’s last update in Q3 2020.

A comprehensive set of software-defined HCI capabilities for providers becomes an industry consensus. All 11 providers evaluated in the report deliver a software-defined hyperconverged platform that supports virtualized compute, storage, and network. 

SmartX’s hyperconverged product, SmartX HCI, incorporates HCI software that provides a license-free hypervisor and distributed storage, backup and disaster recovery, network and security, container management and service, as well as a management platform for both virtual machines and containers.

Full-stack hyperconverged infrastructure has become a popular choice for customers to replace legacy virtualization. With full-fuction software and multiple hardware choices, HCI delivers better flexibility, scalability, and total cost of ownership than legacy virtualization and dedicated hardware.

SmartX HCI supports VMware virtualization as well as its own license-free native hypervisor, ELF. With migration tools such as SMTX Migration and SMTX CloudMove, customers can easily migrate virtual machines or physical hosts from the VMware platform or various cloud platforms, to SmartX ELF virtualization platform. Customers can also choose from various hardware, or even legacy hardware, to run SmartX HCI.

SmartX has been named a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice in APAC for HCI Software 3 years in a row, as well as included in Gartner’s Market Guide for Full-Stack Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software 2023.

A full-function, completely free community edition of SmartX HCI is now available. Customers can now download the free community edition and join Slack for community support.
