It’s that time of year for the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage and again, HPE was named a Leader. I recommend you read the Newsroom blog by Sandeep Singh, Marketing VP at HPE Storage. As the title of Sandeep’s blog posts states, this is the third year in a row that HPE is named a leader. You can download a copy of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage for yourself. Note it does require registration to download.
A few highlights from Sandeep’s blog:
- Primary Storage needs to do a lot more! Storing data is just the beginning. Customers need to ensure that data is: always on, always-fast, and powering their apps; secure and protected from ransomware and cyberattacks; accessible seamlessly to data innovators; and mobile across private, public, and multi-cloud environments.
- Underpinning HPE’s achievement is a vision to simplify data management with a cloud operational experience. We deliver on this vision with the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform.
- The HPE GreenLake platform offers customers a broad portfolio of cloud services that provide greater choice and freedom for their business and IT strategies via an open and modern platform that delivers a cloud experience everywhere. And storage as a service is a very popular HPE GreenLake offering.
- Recently announced innovations expand HPE GreenLake cloud services with HPE GreenLake for data protection, providing disaster recovery and backup cloud services as seamless extensions to primary storage.
- HPE InfoSight, our industry-leading AI Ops for infrastructure, has pioneered many innovations in AI-driven intelligence over the last decade as it has transformed the customer support experience.
- We recently introduced HPE CloudPhysics, a SaaS service delivering data-driven insights for smarter IT decisions. HPE CloudPhysics enables IT to optimize application workload placement, procure right-sized infrastructure services, and lower costs.
