In depth, side by side comparison of the latest technologies including SAN, Virtualization, Solid State and Object Storage, NAS, Archive, Disk to Disk, VTL, and Deduplication.

PRweb: January 7, 2014, Boulder, Colorado. In the rapidly changing and ever innovating market of data storage, it’s extremely difficult for IT professionals to keep up with the latest products and newest features.  It can take months to research vendor offerings, and often times the only research that users can find is published by the vendor and may therefore be biased or oriented towards positive features while glossing over negatives.

Product Comparison matrices are spreadsheet style documents that offer side-by-side assessment of product features and functionality; they are published exclusively by Evaluator Group, an independent IT analyst firm. These documents empower IT professionals to make decisions with data that has been validated and clarified, thus reducing risk, saving time, and helping users to accurately judge what solution is best suited for their unique environment. The matrices are updated regularly with product announcements, but once a year they are given a thorough overhaul, with Senior Analysts working to ensure the accuracy of all numbers and statistics.

“Reflecting on the last 6 months, we have observed rapid changes in many categories, especially in solid state storage arrays, as vendors release new capacity levels and models,” said Camberley Bates, Managing Director Evaluator Group. “This reflects the rapid advancement in the latest flash technology devices and vendors introducing the latest technology for continued economic gain.  The next 6 months we expect to see vendors make additional major announcements around advanced storage functionality.”

The year-end updates have been completed on the following Product Comparison Matrices:

  • Solid State Storage
  • NAS
  • SAN High End, Midrange and Entry Level
  • Storage Virtualization Solutions
