StorReduce Named a 2018 Cool Vendor in Storage Technologies by Gartner

Vendors selected for the Cool Vendor report are innovative, impactful and intriguing

StorReduce, the ground-breaking scale-out cloud and object storage deduplication software company, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor in the, 2018 “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies” report by Gartner, Inc. The report evaluates interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services in the storage technology market. Gartner’s report points out “Scaling continues to amplify current storage challenges, including how to move, store and access large amounts of data on-premises and sending it to/from the cloud.” This report also provides recommendations for I&O leaders to implement including the following:

  • Deploy software-defined storage products that are designed to take advantage of the latest flash technology when trying to build the foundation for mixed workloads (such as high-performance computing for the cloud).

  • Address current storage demands by implementing solutions that can help add new data services (such as data reduction) or offer greater choice in new and expanded governance and long-term retention approaches. This is key when confronting the challenge of replacing or augmenting legacy storage offerings with new solutions.

“We feel it is an honor to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor,” said Vanessa Wilson, Co-Founder and CEO StorReduce. “StorReduce with cloud and object storage enables the next generation software defined solution for purpose built backup appliance (PBBA) replacement. What’s game-changing is that instead of being hardware bound and stored in silos on PBBAs, the backup data is now stored in a stateless, immensely scalable and durable platform due to the properties of cloud and StorReduce, plus the client saves up to 70% over replacing their PBBA. It is an immense benefit all round.”

We believe the information provided in the Gartner report is of value to all I&O leaders who are seeking new ways to transform their storage technology.
