The Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage replaces two previous Magic Quadrants – the Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays and the Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Storage Arrays – thus acknowledging that all-flashes no longer a novelty. Gartner first recognized NetApp in 2013 as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays, and we have remained in the Leaders quadrant now for six consecutive years. Since 2016, NetApp has also been a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays. We believe,our position on the Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage isn’t just a one-time honor; it’s part of an established pattern of excellence.
