Pure Storage has improved its position within the Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner’ July 2017 Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays by Gartner. For the fourth consecutive year, Pure Storage is positioned furthest along the “Completeness of Vision” axis in the Leaders Quadrant.
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.
“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” said Nirav Sheth, VP, Worldwide Partner Sales, Cisco.
“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.”
