|HDS was named a Challenger in Gartner's most recent Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays. Vendors in the Challengers quadrant participate in the SSA market and execute well enough to be a serious threat to vendors in the Leaders quadrant. They have strong products, as well as sufficient credible market position and resources to sustain continued growth. Financial viability is not an issue for vendors in the Challengers quadrant, but they lack the size and influence of vendors in the Leaders quadrant*.
By 2020, SSA purchases by revenue will be approximately 50% of the external controller-based storage array market*. HDS leads the way with the most industry patents.
