The 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software has been released and StorMagic is proud to have been recognized in the report, for the fourth year running!
While being included in the report is an honor in itself, we are particularly pleased to have been recognized as a “Visionary” in the 2021 report. In years past, we’ve been recognized in the “Niche” quadrant, so we are excited about this change.
About the Gartner Magic Quadrant
Magic Quadrant reports are a culmination of rigorous, fact-based research in specific markets, providing a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the providers in markets where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. Providers are positioned into four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries and Niche Players. The research enables you to get the most from market analysis in alignment with your unique business and technology needs.
Gartner defines Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Software as, “…providing virtualized compute, storage and networking from a single instantiation running on server hardware”.
Key Takeaways for StorMagic
Within the Magic Quadrant, Gartner defines the Visionary category as follows: “Visionaries are typically vendors that are focusing on strong innovation and product differentiation, with the potential to significantly disrupt the market if execution improves. These may be smaller vendors with limited reach or achievement to date, or larger vendors with innovation programs that are still unproven.” We believe that our recognition as “Visionary” in the 2021 edition of the report is a testament to our dedication and focus on solving customer dilemmas and meeting their specific requirements at the edge.
We believe our inclusion in the report is due to the progress and development we’ve made in the past year, including:
- We have designed our hyperconverged products specifically for the unique requirements of the edge and distributed datacenters.
- Our customers have been telling Gartner that our software is easy to use, very reliable and extremely cost-effective.
- The relationship we have developed with HPE is growing globally with our inclusion in the HPE Complete and HPE GreenLake programs.
