Pure Storage in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Fourth Consecutive Year

Pure Storage has announced that it has improved its position within the Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner’ July 2017 Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays (SSAs) by Gartner, Inc., a leading global research firm. For the fourth consecutive year, Pure Storage is positioned furthest along the “Completeness of Vision” axis in the Leaders Quadrant.

In the past year, Pure Storage has continued to innovate at a breakneck pace. In October 2016, Pure Storage introduced a petabyte-scale configuration of its flagship FlashArray//M family and significantly expanded its collaboration with Cisco to enhance the companies’ joint FlashStack converged infrastructure platform. Cisco and Pure Storage have developed Cisco Validated Designs for FlashStack that include Citrix, Commvault, Oracle, SAP and VMware. The joint FlashStack solution has thousands of deployments in more than 30 countries and continues to have triple digit growth year over year. FlashStack customers span industries including retail, healthcare, education, financial services and service providers. Notable customers include Room & Board, Dominos, Texas Children’s Hospital and Secure-24.

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

Additionally, the company continued to invest in improvements to its Evergreen Storage program, which now includes an NVMe-ready guarantee. In April, Pure Storage announced the market’s first enterprise-class, all-flash, all-NVMe array, FlashArray//X. In June, the company held its second annual user conference, Pure//Accelerate, where it unveiled its vision to provide the world’s most innovative organizations with the all-flash data platform for the cloud era. Additionally, Pure Storage announced a 75-blade system and continued momentum for its second major product, FlashBlade, with bleeding-edge customers like UC Berkeley, Mercedes and ION. With use cases across genomics, machine learning, AI, IoT and many more, FlashBlade powers today’s most complex workloads and enables tomorrow’s world-changing innovations.

"Since inception in 2009, Pure has innovated to fix data storage---to make it dramatically faster, simpler, more robust, and lower cost to own over time, " said Scott Dietzen, CEO, Pure Storage. "This year's shipping innovations may well be our best ever with FlashBlade, FlashArray//X, ActiveClustering and our next-generation converged infrastructure in FlashStack. 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. 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."
