The results are in. Gartner has just issued the 2014 Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays. This is Tintri’s first year being named in the Magic Quadrant, which is why we are so proud of the result—Gartner has positioned Tintri as a Visionary. In fact, Tintri is the furthest to the right on ‘completeness of vision’ among next generation storage solution providers in the Visionaries quadrant.
While our position on the Magic Quadrant is but a small dot, it represents some big ideas. At Tintri, we challenge the ‘storage quo’—we are very intentionally seeking new solutions to old storage problems. That’s why we’ve dispatched with LUNs, volumes, striping and other archaic concepts, so that our customers can manage only what they care about—VMs and applications.
In its report Gartner provides a very balanced review of the storage landscape. I encourage you to read the entire report here, including my favorite section, Tintri’s strengths.
We know receiving Visionary placement on the Magic Quadrant involves a lot of work. So, we’ll take just a moment to catch our breath… and now, like any visionary, it’s back to work on the next innovation.
