RICHARDSON, Texas, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VCE, the leader in converged
cloud infrastructure systems, today announced it has been named the market
share leader for integrated infrastructure systems according to a recent
analysis by Gartner.[1] According to the report, VCE had a 57.4% share among a
group of leading vendors of integrated infrastructure systems in the second
quarter of 2012 based on revenue.

The Gartner report is the first view the firm has presented on the size of the
integrated systems market. It has traditionally tracked the server, networking
and external controller-based storage areas as discrete markets, but has found

center hardware systems that cross these technology silos.

VCE technologies help companies and organizations accelerate the adoption of
cloud computing. Its Vblock™ ^ Systems bring together leading technologies
from Cisco, EMC and VMware into a single, integrated and pre-configured
converged infrastructure system with seamless support.

"The integrated infrastructure market is one of the fastest growing segments
in the industry, and Gartner's recognition of VCE as the market share leader
demonstrates the demand we're seeing for Vblock Systems," said Praveen
Akkiraju, CEO, VCE. "Vblock Systems differentiates themselves with best in
class speed to deployment of critical applications & workloads, delivering
exceptional performance and compelling Total Cost of Ownership. Our rapid
growth is the result of our laser focus on customer experience and value."

as part of their cloud offerings, and VCE has significant penetration into
Fortune 500 accounts.
