Gartner’s Methodology And Inclusion Criteria

To be included in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage Arrays, vendors need to sell arrays through a combination of direct, indirect and OEM channels, with an average selling price of at least $50,000 per array for the entire family of products.

Additionally, each vendor must generate more than $50 million in annual primary storage array revenue and/or have an install base of at least 500 customers within the midmarket and enterprise space. The vendor also has to sell its product under its brand as a stand-alone array platform without requiring customers to bundle it with another company’s storage product.

Vendors who made Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant that were dropped in its new 2020 report were Infortrend, NEC, Silk, Synology and Western Digital.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant ranks vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision and places them in four categories: Niche Players (low on vision and execution), Visionaries (good vision but low execution), Challengers (good execution but low vision) and Leaders (excelling in both vision and execution). For this particular Magic Quadrant, no vendors were listed as ‘Visionaries’.
