We’re proud to announce that for the third year in a row, Pure Storage has been named A Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage! 


Being recognized as A Leader in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ is not just about technology; it’s about consistently delivering value and innovation to our customers. We’ve always put our customers at the forefront of our efforts, working closely with them to understand their most critical challenges and objectives. This customer-centric approach has  enabled us to develop offerings that exceed customer expectations by providing data storage that’s simple, sustainable, and operationally efficient. 

“We have loved working with Pure [Storage]. They have been very reliable and performant. The customer service that they provide is amazing and we see them continuing to do better year after year.

The Next Generations of FlashBlade

Since its General Availability in 2017, FlashBlade has set out to redefine the scale-out file and object storage industry. Last year, we delivered our best unstructured data solution yet with the introduction of FlashBlade//S™ for supporting data-heavy, modern workloads with twice the density, capacity, and performance of the first generation.

We continued this  pace of innovation  with the introduction of FlashBlade//E, the industry’s first all-flash solution designed to be price-competitive with legacy spinning disks. We have continued to enhance both data services and protocol maturity (NFS, SMB and S3)–with improved encryption, replication, lock management, file system metrics, enhanced file system support, quotas and more. Every year, hundreds of new customers deploy FlashBlade for their unstructured data needs, and we look forward to continuing this momentum with the latest generations of FlashBlade.

Always Innovating with Evergreen

Most of all, the promise of Evergreen Subscription Services enables our customers to ride the innovation curve without incurring downtime. With Evergreen, our customers never have to worry about disruptive data migrations, nor their storage platforms becoming obsolete again. This is unique to the entire Pure portfolio and unmatched in the industry. 

Gartner’s recognition of Pure Storage as A Leader in both the Distributed File Systems and Object Storage and Primary Storage Magic Quadrant™ reports year after year is a significant achievement that underscores Pure’s dedication to innovation, customer satisfaction, and consistent excellence.
