According to Gartner, “The rise of hybrid IT, cloud, and multi-cloud storage present 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.”

“Hammerspace is honored to be named a Cool Vendor by Gartner. We see this as validation that the future of infrastructure is hybrid and that one of the greatest challenges facing the adoption of modernized workloads is the management of unstructured data growth,” said David Flynn, CEO of Hammerspace. “Our customers are looking for modern storage solutions built for hybrid IT that improve performance, data portability, and collaboration while removing the complexity inherited from legacy systems. Hammerspace Hybrid Cloud NAS meets all of these needs while also significantly reducing the total cost of data.”

Cut the tethers of data gravity and stop worrying about storage The Hammerspace approach to hybrid cloud NAS effectively makes data storageless. By using a global file system that instantly replicates metadata anywhere, regardless of infrastructure or geography, file data can be moved live and on-demand. This greatly reduces the cost of data sprawl, the complexity of traditional hybrid cloud NAS architectures, and the time IT spends on maintenance. Hammerspace customers include well-known brands across industries including Financial Services, Life Sciences, Media & Entertainment, Government, Higher Education, and Legal Services.
