 Leader: Dell Technologies

Dell Technologies won the gold medal for execution on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, while also ranking third for vision. The Round Rock, Texas-based infrastructure and PC giant leads with PowerScale, a distributed file system that runs on-premises and available as a native service in Google Cloud, as well as Dell’s object storage platform ECS, which runs on-premise and in the cloud. Both products cover the majority of the unstructured data use cases and offer centralized management with Dell EMC’s CloudIQ and DataIQ.

Strength: Dell has the largest installed base on the planet of unstructured data storage with PowerScale and ECS, Gartner said. The storage products built on the same Dell server hardware, giving clients assurance on product reliability and parts availability.

Weakness: Dell lacks an SDS offering that can run on non-Dell, bare-metal x86 servers and lacks market traction in public cloud deployments, Garter said this results in limited applicability as a hybrid cloud storage solution.
