Top 13 Leading Primary Storage Players Worldwide
The primary storage array market is evolving around NVMe, AIOps, public cloud integrations and new consumption-based models, according to Gartner’s new Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage Arrays that ranks the top storage arrays vendors in the world.
By 2023, at least 20 percent of enterprises will leverage cloud storage management tools to integrate on-premises storage platforms directly with the public cloud for backup and disaster recovery use cases, according to Gartner. Additionally, Gartner predicts that by 2025, at least 50 percent of enterprises will shift toward OpEx-based storage consumption models, up from less than 10 percent in 2020.
A primary storage array’s purpose is to support response time and input/output per second (IOPS)-sensitive structured data workloads. These storage platforms provide a broad library of data services that conserve capacity utilization, protect against data loss, and enhance recovery via local and remote replication.
