We concur with the Gartner assessment that growing data absolutely necessitates storage solutions that address the needs of many use cases with low acquisition and operational costs. We believe Dell EMC is positioned in the upper right corner of the Leaders Quadrant today because of our ability to meet this need.
This report evaluates Distributed File and Object Storage vendors that help customers deal with the rapid growth in unstructured data. Isilon, the industry leader in scale-out NAS storage, and Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS), were both recognized as leaders in this Gartner report. We believe this recognition demonstrates our industry-leading capabilities to help prepare our customers for their digital future. Isilon and ECS help customers drive their IT and business transformation by providing storage efficiency, performance, global access and reliability at scale and economics that businesses demand.
