Red Hat Named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage

Red Hat announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Red Hat in the “Visionaries” quadrant of Gartner’s October 2016 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage for Red Hat Ceph Storage and Red Hat Gluster Storage.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrants are based on rigorous analysis of a vendor’s completeness of vision and ability to execute. This is the first year Gartner has published a Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage.

Red Hat Ceph Storage and Red Hat Gluster Storage are both highly agile solutions that are built to handle different types of demanding workloads. Red Hat Ceph Storage is a robust, unified storage platform designed for object storage and cloud infrastructures at petabyte-scale. Red Hat Gluster Storage is a powerful distributed file system that offers flexible storage services across the datacenter's footprints – bare metal, virtual machines, private clouds, public clouds, and containerized environments. Both offerings can be deployed on industry-standard hardware. They are supported by an active community of open source developers and partners and used by companies around the world.  

Ranga Rangachari, vice president and general manager, Storage, Red Hat, said, "At Red Hat, we believe the future of storage is open, software-defined, and agile. That belief is the foundation of our vision: to provide enterprises with storage solutions that go well beyond traditional storage and allow them to effectively embrace the hybrid cloud and container infrastructures of tomorrow.”
