Nutanix is Named a Visionary in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Distributed File Systems and Objects Storage for the Second Year

Nutanix Recognized Based on its Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

San Jose, California – October 28, 2022 – Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in hybrid multicloud computing, announced today it has been named as a Visionary in the Gartner October 2022 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Objects Storage. This marks the second consecutive year the company has been recognized in this report. Nutanix believes this recognition can be attributed to its strong product vision aimed at addressing enterprises' demand for more simple and secure ways to manage and natively protect their data.

“New applications are the lifeblood of competitive advantage and customers simply don’t have time to plan, manage, and secure separate block, file and object platforms,” said Lee Caswell, SVP Marketing, at Nutanix. “We believe this recognition by Gartner exactly captures how our consistent operating model for files and objects challenges storage norms and captures the imagination of new high-capacity storage users who may or may not use our well-known hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions.”

Nutanix Unified Storage provides unified management for Nutanix Files, Nutanix Objects, and Nutanix Volumes, along with Nutanix Data Lens, a data security and analytics solution that helps users detect, respond, and recover from ransomware and other cyber-attacks. Nutanix Unified Storage brings software-defined, server-based value to large-capacity file, object and block use cases that would typically require proprietary NAS and SAN systems. Unified Storage is finding particular traction with public sector, healthcare and financial services customers by eliminating siloed storage systems, allowing storage admins to focus more on application services and less on infrastructure. 

Nutanix continues to strengthen its Unified Storage offering, most recently adding new ransomware protection features to Nutanix Files and Nutanix Data Lens to further help businesses protect against ransomware attacks. This builds onto the Nutanix Cloud Platform’s native platform hardening, security auditing and reporting, and protection from network threats, all key elements of implementing a Zero Trust approach to security.
