Gartner just published its 2019 Critical Capabilities for Object Storage. As IBM did in the last publication (January 2018), IBM Cloud Object Storage scored highest overall for Analytics (4.24), Archiving (4.24), Backup (4.23) and Cloud Storage (4.24) use cases. This is the third time in a row that IBM scored highest in three of the use cases, Analytics, Archiving and Cloud Storage.
“We are again pleased to see IBM Cloud Object Storage consistently highest for Analytics, Archiving, Backup and Cloud Storage use cases. We feel that our offering is highlighted by the fact that we support some of the largest object storage customers in the world and that speaks highly of our leadership, as do the results expressed in Gartner Critical Capabilities for Object Storage.”
