We are excited to announce that Cloudian has been recognized as a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage. It’s the second year in a row we received this distinction, and we’re proud that Cloudian continues to be a trendsetter in customer excellence. As of 18th March 2021, we had the highest overall rating (4.8 out of 5) and the most reviews (77 reviews) in our market.

We see this as a phenomenal recognition in the competitive data storage industry. What makes it even more impressive is that, according to Gartner, “The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals.” To ensure fair evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate, so we believe this makes the recognition that much more consequential.

In 2020, we all had to work together to innovate and adapt to our new virtual world. Cloudian didn’t just survive, we thrived, by keeping our customers first. We delivered key new products like Storage Magazine’s Products of the Year Finalist, HyperIQ, and key new features like our Kubernetes S3 Operator for HyperStore. And we never lost sight of the main way customers use our storage—as a backup target—and protected that storage from ransomware with 2020 NAB Show Product of the Year, Object Lock.

Here are just a few excerpts from our customer reviews this year:

Thanks to all our customers for taking the time to post these reviews, and for your ongoing support and commitment. These reviews help us mold our products and our customer journey, and we look forward to building on the experience that earned us this distinction!

We also want to thank Cloudian’s alliances and resellers; without them, this recognition would not have been possible.
