Pure Storage named a leader in 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage

A storage leader for eight consecutive years, Pure Storage is also #1 in containers in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for primary storage.

October 15, 2021 —Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, announced it has been positioned by Gartner® as a leader in the Magic Quadrant™ for Primary Storage.

Shawn Hansen, VP and general manager, FlashArray Pure Storage, said, “Pure Storage started with a vision of a better storage experience built around all-flash technology and a customer first mindset. This validation from Gartner, made possible by our fantastic team, customers, and partners, reinforces that original vision and is a testament to our ability to separate from legacy storage.”

Pure Storage continues to expand and enhance its flagship FlashArray solutions to disrupt industry norms and bring customers what they need for today and tomorrow.

Several milestones have been achieved over the past year, including:

Delivered new FlashArray innovation, including an expanded capacity FlashArray//C and new features like comprehensive ransomware protection.

Extended its leadership in as-a-Service and subscription offerings, expanding its as-a-Service catalogue, reaching new growth milestones with its Evergreen subscription, and bringing Pure Cloud Block Store to Microsoft Azure.

Introduced Pure Fusion™, an industry-first self-service, autonomous storage platform that marries the best of enterprise storage with the agility and scalability of the cloud.

Recognised as a 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for primary storage.
