FYI, this story is more than a year old

Pure Storage has announced it was named the leader for the third consecutive year in the GigaOm Radar Report for Enterprise Kubernetes Storage, and its companion report for Cloud-Native Kubernetes Data Storage.

GigaOm's Report for Enterprise Kubernetes Storage analyses enterprise storage systems with support for Kubernetes-based workloads, while the companion report analyses Kubernetes-native storage solutions built specifically to support stateful containers with scalable, distributed architectures.

According to the GigaOm Radar Report for Cloud-Native Kubernetes Storage, Portworx by Pure Storage “is one of the most advanced solutions for enterprise Kubernetes storage” and “remains the gold standard in cloud-native Kubernetes storage for the enterprise”.

It is considered “a complete enterprise-grade solution with outstanding data management capabilities, unmatched deployment possibilities, and superior management features".

Across criteria and evaluation metrics, Portworx was ranked by GigaOm as a “strong focus and perfect fit” in advanced data services, advanced CSI integration, deployment models, control plane architecture, developer experience, visibility and insights, as well as architecture, scalability, flexibility, manageability and performance.

Portworx continues to advance the innovation of its Kubernetes Data Platform to bring databases such as Kafka, Cassandra, and Postgres under one platform in the most simple and reliable manner with Portworx Data Services.

The GigaOm Radar Report for Enterprise Kubernetes Storage claimed “the integration of Portworx Essentials on Pure Storage controller-based architectures significantly enhances data efficiency because users benefit from the data reduction capabilities offered by the storage arrays".

The report also highlights that this integration “allows organisations to seamlessly deploy cloud-native workloads on a proven Kubernetes storage solution, and as their needs grow, they can effortlessly migrate those workloads to the full Portworx solution if they decide to adopt it",

Once again, Pure Storage received the highest scores among all market segments, deployment models, and evaluation metrics in the analysis, the company confirms.

Murli Thirumale, VP and GM cloud native business unit at Pure Storage, commented on the announcement.

Thirumale says, “For three consecutive years, we've been recognised as a Leader and Outperformer by GigaOm Radar. Customers running containers and databases at scale in production use Portworx to ensure highly reliable, available and secure Kubernetes data storage capabilities.

"I'm incredibly proud of our Portworx engineering team's recognition by GigaOm as we continue on our mission to help enterprises unleash the power of data.

In addition to the GigaOm Radar Reports for Cloud-Native Kubernetes Data Storage and Enterprise Kubernetes Data Storage, Pure Storage has been consistently recognised as a leader across the other GigaOm reports for which it qualifies, including High-Performance Object Storage, Kubernetes Data Protection, and Enterprise General-Purpose Storage Systems.
