This is a leader's square for storage leaders, IBM, Dell EMC and Scality tell wide-eyed Qumulo

Consolidated MQ returns fake insights

How do you compare Scality and Qumulo positions in this MQ against Dell EMC from a neutral perspective? Dell EMC is consolidating several products to achieve this leadership spot (Isilon, ECS, Atmos) whereas Scality niches object storage only and Qumulo equally does it for scale-out NAS storage.

Gartner's internal rules for publishing solution MQs with enough players in it might result in a distorted market view as in this case.

EMC VPLEX matches to XP7 Active-Active

Just to add some detail to Michael Duke's comment:

3PAR Peer Persistence (it is a SW feature, not a virtualization appliance) might match to VPLEX only in VMware vMSC Active-Active architectures, but they are absolutely different animals. The right matching is VPLEX vs XP7 Active-Active, wihich is the HP OEM naming for HDS's VSP g1000 storage virtualization gateway (in case you ask, I honestly think it is much better than VPLEX).

EMC VPLEX matches to HP XP7 Active-Active

In my condition of HP storage salesman, I just want to add some details to Michael Duke's comment:

3PAR Peer Persistence (it is a SW feature, not a virtualization appliance) can match to VPLEX when talking about VMware vMSC Active-Active scenarios, but they are absolutely different animals. The right matching is VPLEX vs XP7 Active-Active, wihich is the HP OEM naming for HDS VSP g1000 storage virtualization gateway.
