Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant For Distributed File Systems And Object Storage
Enterprises will triple their unstructured data stored as file or object storage on-premise, at the edge or in the public cloud by 2024, according to Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems And Object Storage.
Furthermore, Gartner predicts that by 2024, 50 percent of the global unstructured data storage capacity will be deployed as software-defined storage (SDS) on-premises or in the public cloud, up from less than 20 percent in 2020. Gartner customers are reporting unstructured data as growing between 30 percent and 60 percent year over year.
The unstructured data storage market is quickly evolving to meet the needs of massive data growth and digital transformation requirements to connect and collect everything. Storage infrastructure products based on distributed file systems and object storage are “increasing faster than ever” in both number and capacity of deployments as the platform of choice to address the explosion of unstructured data in global data centers, Gartner said.
Here are the 14 market leading companies that made Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems And Object Storage, along with assessments of each company‘s strengths and weaknesses in storage.
