Leading Analyst Firm Positions DataDirect Networks as a Challenger in Magic Quadrant for General Purpose Disk Arrays

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

News Facts

  • DataDirect Networks (DDN) has been positioned in the Challengers quadrant in Gartner's report, 'Magic Quadrant for General Purpose Disk Arrays'.[i]
  • According to Gartner, "Improvements in scalability, availability, performance and functionality of midrange storage systems have blurred the boundaries between network-attached, midrange and high-end storage systems."
  • This latest report reflects these changes in user buying behaviors and focuses on end-user requirements for storage efficiency and ease-of-use features to meet their increasing Big Data and regulatory needs.
  • Gartner describes Challengers in the broad general-purpose disk array market as "…execut[ing] well enough to be a serious threat to vendors in the Leaders quadrant. They have strong products, as well as sufficient credible market position and resources to sustain continued growth. Financial viability is not an issue for vendors in the Challengers quadrant, but they lack the size and influence of vendors in the Leaders quadrant."
  • With over 1,000 customers including some of the most demanding environments in the world, DDN continues to demonstrate an ability to support large scale environments, while investing in its vision with a laser focus on channel partner sales efficiency and support, marketing and R&D.
  • Whether customers require massive scalability for cloud storage applications or appliances tuned for Big Data processing, DDN believes its position in the Magic Quadrant showcases the company's ability to effectively compete and grow revenue in key vertical markets including financial services, life sciences, oil and gas, government intelligence, rich media, and web and cloud properties.
