Nimble Storage Featured as a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays

Gartner recently issued their “General-Purpose Disk Arrays Magic Quadrant” for 2013 with Nimble Storage placed in the Visionaries Quadrant. This is great result for Nimble Storage when you consider that in the past Gartner has divided the storage market into SAN , NAS and mid-range storage, but for the first time has combined them into a single Disk Array Magic Quadrant. Gartner has included Nimble Storage as one of just 20 vendors selected out of a whole host of vendors delivering enterprise class data storage systems.

“Gartner expects the advantages of the traditional high-end enterprise storage arrays to disappear over the next three to five years, because the pace of innovation is occurring faster in the larger and more dynamic midrange segment of the storage market,” creating a big opportunity for Nimble.

Innovation is at the heart of everything Nimble Storage does – whether it is leveraging advanced software methods to provide 5x better performance than the competition, delivering superior capacity efficiency, unparalleled flexibility to customers in scaling their storage, or leveraging data sciences to deliver world-class proactive support.
