Gartner defines the Distributed File & Object Systems market as software and hardware appliance products that offer object and distributed file system technologies for unstructured data. These technologies are pivotal for storing, securing, protecting, and scaling unstructured data with network access using file and object protocols.

According to Gartner, the “Voice of the Customer” report includes numerical scores for Overall Rating and four category ratings in each vendor summary. These numerical scores are weighted averages based on the available sample size of eligible reviews within the stated time frame. Thus, they are best interpreted as sample statistics with a reasonable margin for error, not as exact values.
