Niche Player: DataDirect Networks (DDN)

DDN ranks last place for vision and near the bottom for execution on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant. The Los Angeles-based company’s EXAScaler is a distributed file system that runs on-premises and in the cloud. It is deployed primarily for large-scale, high-throughput file workloads and sometimes as an S3 target for archive use cases. EXAScaler is powered by the Lustre open-source parallel file system. EXAScaler is best suited for HPC and analytics.

Strength: DDN offers a proven storage solution for HPC and artificial intelligence workloads, including enhancements for deployment and integration in GPU environments to support NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD.

Weakness: DDN’s offerings have limited focus in addressing requirements for general-purpose file storage, Gartner said. The company doesn’t have developer-friendly object storage for object-native workloads that is simple to download, deploy and manage.
