NetApp has announced it was named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Solid-State Arrays. Gartner defines Solid-State Arrays as highly automated, guaranteed low latency solid-state storage arrays compared to older larger and slower electromechanical storage array offerings which use hard-disk drives (HDDs).
This latest recognition for NetApp, which is based on reviews from NetApp’s customers, follows its inclusion by Gartner analysts as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays for the third consecutive year. NetApp offers a full range of data products and services for companies to modernize their IT architecture with cloud-connected flash, helping them succeed with resource-intensive Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications and other complex data use-cases.
“We believe that being named a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice reflects our status as the fastest-growing vendor in flash and the overall evolution of our cloud-connected flash storage capabilities. We have a customer-first focus on innovations that make life easier for our users through automated analytics and management of storage with easy integrations to the cloud,” said Joel Reich, Executive Vice President – Storage Systems & Software, NetApp.
Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice selections are based on recognitions of vendors submitted by verified end-user professionals. The criteria also consider both the number of customer reviews and the overall user ratings.
