Evaluator Group Releases 2015 Storage Product Comparison Matrices & Evaluation Guides

Wednesday, January 7th 2015

Technologies covered include SAN, NAS, Solid State, Object, Archive, Virtual SAN, Management Software, Storage Virtualization, and Software Defined Storage

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) January 7, 2015. In the rapidly innovating market of data storage, it is extremely difficult for IT professionals to keep up with the latest products and cutting-edge features. Researching vendor offerings can be time consuming and error prone. Evaluator Group maintains up-to-date comparison matrices and, once a year, conducts a major review of all storage products to add new relevant functionality and assure all data is accurate.

Combined with the Evaluation Guides, which detail critical characteristics and trade-offs, Evaluator Group empowers IT Enterprises with validated data; thus reducing risk, saving time, and helping users accurately judge which solution is best suited for their unique environment.

Accessible by paid subscription, Product Comparison Matrices offer a side-by-side and vendor neutral assessment of product features and are published exclusively by Evaluator Group, an independent IT analyst firm specializing in data storage. Evaluator Group is not paid or reimbursed by vendors for inclusion of products or promotion.

“In 2014 we added coverage for Virtual SANs and are currently adding a new comparison for Solid State Systems-Adapted Designs,” said Camberley Bates, Managing Director of Evaluator Group. “Later in 2015, we will roll out an Interactive Comparison Matrix for users to quickly compare specific products.”

The full list of 2014 Comparison Matrices and Evaluation Guides includes the following technologies:

  •                   SAN High End, Midrange, and Entry Level
