We’re proud to announce that we have been recognized as a Cool Vendor in the May 2021 Gartner Cool Vendors in Storage and Hybrid Infrastructure report. We believe that this is a powerful step forward in our work toward building a global file system across on-premises and cloud to deliver data wherever it is needed. 

The report is “designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services”. The report also provides recommendations for digital marketers to take their strategies forward.

According to Gartner, “The rise of hybrid IT, cloud and multi-cloud storage presents a challenge for I&O leaders-adopting modernized workloads while also managing unstructured data growth and legacy technology. To address these challenges, I&O leaders should evaluate the cool vendors in this research.”

As modernization projects are developed, key challenges for I&O leaders include:

  • Multi-vendor storage management
  • Vendor lock-in
  • Data portability
