Leading analyst Gartner, Inc. has positioned NetApp in the Leaders quadrant for midrange and high-end NAS solutions.
In a recently released research note, Magic Quadrant for Midrange and High-End NAS Solutions, Gartner explains that vendors in the Leaders quadrant have the highest scores for their ability to execute and completeness of vision.
A midrange and high-end NAS vendor in the Leaders quadrant has the market share, credibility, and marketing and sales capabilities needed to drive the acceptance of new technologies.
The research note goes on to say that the vendors demonstrate a clear understanding of market needs, being innovators and thought leaders with well-articulated plans that customers and prospects can use when designing their storage systems and strategies.
Chris Cummings, Vice President, Product and Solutions Marketing at NetApp believes that their position in the Gartner Leaders quadrant is strong recognition of the flexibility, efficiency and value NetApp solutions deliver to enable compelling business outcomes for their customers.
As more organisations move to public and private cloud infrastructures, they are turning to NetApp technologies to increase business agility and respond faster to business needs, says Mr Cummings.
A key advantage of NetApp’s storage solutions is their ability to deliver innovations built on a single, unified architecture that are optimised for shared infrastructures.
NetApp provides the platform of choice to help customers make the transition to a flexible and efficient shared IT infrastructure, the foundation for cloud computing and enable IT to be an accelerator of the business.
NetApp Unified Storage Architecture allows customers to support many applications, diverse workloads, and changing requirements through a single platform and set of processes to reduce complexity and drive down costs.
Additionally, NetApp’s innovative storage and data management technologies, such as scale up and scale out, secure multi-tenancy, storage efficiency, and service automation and analytics, help customers capitalise on new growth opportunities and drive greater efficiencies.
