NetApp has been named a Leader in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays, based on its ability to execute and its completeness of vision. According to Gartner, Leaders execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow.*
"We believe our position as a Leader in this year's Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays underscores the fact that NetApp is enabling customers' successful transition to flash," said George Kurian, chief executive officer of NetApp. "As flash replaces hard disk drives for primary workloads, we are winning against and replacing both established and emerging vendors because of the successful business outcomes enabled by our highly differentiated all-flash-array portfolio."
