SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 3, 2020 – Cloudian® today announced that its HyperStore® object storage platform received the highest rankings across all use cases in Gartner’s 2020 Critical Capabilities for Object Storage. As Gartner explains in the report, “in this research, we evaluate 11 object storage products against eight critical capabilities in use cases relevant to I&O leaders.”

On a five-point scale, HyperStore had the following use case scores:

  • Hybrid cloud storage – 4.25
  • Analytics – 4.23
  • Cloud storage – 4.23
  • Archiving – 4.21
  • Backup – 4.20

According to Gartner, “Critical Capabilities research complements a Gartner Magic Quadrant by allowing deeper insight into the providers’ product or service offerings by identifying which ones best fit various use cases.”*

“Unlike other Gartner publications, this Critical Capabilities report is the only one focused exclusively on object storage, so we see it as a testament to the strength of our HyperStore platform,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “Over the past year, we’ve added new ransomware protection and other security features, support for cloud-native environments, flash-optimization, and observability and analytics software. We look forward to delivering further enhancements to help customers meet their ever-increasing data demands.”
