Pure Storage in 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant - 4 years running

02 Aug 2017

Pure Storage has been included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the fourth consecutive year.

Pure Storage is positioned furthest along the "Completeness of Vision" axis in the Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner July 2017 Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays.

The past year has been busy for the solid-state array vendor.

In October 2016, Pure Storage introduced a petabyte-scale configuration of its FlashArray//M family.

The company also expanded its collaboration with Cisco with the development of Cisco Validated Designs for FlashStack that includes Citrix, Commvault, Oracle, SAP and VMware.

With a number of deployments in more than 30 countries, FlashStack customers are from a range of industries including retail, healthcare, education, financial services and service providers.

"Cisco and Pure Storage continue to drive innovation that delivers a unique combination of performance, simplicity, and efficiency for data center infrastructure," says Nirav Sheth, VP, worldwide partner sales at Cisco.

"Our joint FlashStack converged infrastructure solution enables IT organizations to easily scale with business requirements, accelerate automation and quickly deploy a foundation for hybrid cloud solutions."

In April 2017, Pure Storage launched an enterprise-class, all-flash, all-NVMe array, FlashArray//X.

In addition, the company announced updates to its FlashBlade product line, including the ability to manage up to 75 blades as a single system.

Scott Dietzen, CEO of Pure Storage, says since 2009, Pure Storage has worked to fix data storage; to make it dramatically faster, simpler, more robust, and to lower ownership costs over time.  

"This year's shipping innovations may well be our best ever with FlashBlade, FlashArray//X, ActiveClustering and our next-generation converged infrastructure in FlashStack,” Dietzen says.

“Part of what we believe makes Gartner remarkable is that they are uniquely able to collate insights from thousands of customers on what is really working and what isn't.”

Dietzen concludes, “we feel this is what makes our leadership in the Magic Quadrant so compelling, as we continue to enable our customers to unlock more value from their data, doing so for less cost, making Pure the best all-flash data platform for the cloud era."
