Putting software first are what hyper-converged infrastructures are all about. Hardware, for once, takes the back seat, which is what worries some of the more traditional players.

(ed: The closing date has now been extended to January 2016)

Combining commodity hardware with smart software to produce a self-sustaining system guided by the SDS (Software-Defined software) motto.

Not surprisingly, it has disrupted the business models of a few in the market but has also introduced some exciting opportunities for IT decision makers and CTOs globally.

How hyper are you?

We want to know more about your hyper-converged plans, if you have any, and invite you to a business lunch somewhere near London Paddington, to discuss about your thoughts and do a bit of networking.

Complete our short survey below and you might even win a Sphero BB-8 droid worth £100, one that will appear in Star Wars: Episode VII and one that you can control via your smartphone.

More importantly, we will produce a short report based on the collected data which might provide you with a deeper insight into one of the biggest trends of the past decade in business.

Only U.K residents over 18 can take part in the competition but everyone can participate. The competition will close at 11:59PM, Wednesday 20th January 2016 and the winner will be selected on the 21st.

Désiré has been musing and writing about technology during a career spanning four decades. He dabbled in website building and web hosting when DHTML and frames were en vogue and started writing about the impact of technology on society just before the start of the Y2K hysteria at the turn of the last millennium. Then followed a weekly tech column in a local business magazine in Mauritius, a late night tech radio programme called Clicplus and a freelancing gig at the now-defunct, Theinquirer, with the legendary Mike Magee as mentor. Following an eight-year stint at where he discovered the joys of global techfests, Désiré now heads up TechRadar Pro. He has an affinity for anything hardware and staunchly refuses to stop writing reviews of obscure products or cover niche B2B software-as-a-service providers.
