OneBlox Storage Appliance Takes Gold in Storage Systems Category With High Marks in Innovation, Ease of Use and Functionality

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- Exablox, the company reimagining storage, today announced that OneBlox, a cloud-managed scale-out object storage appliance that can serve as primary storage and as a backup target, was named "The Product of the Year" in the Storage Systems category in the Storage Magazine-SearchStorage.com 2013 Products of the Year awards. OneBlox was "an immediate hit" in the eyes of the award judges winning especially high marks in innovation, ease of use and functionality.

OneBlox's scale-out architecture presents a global namespace for applications and users to access without requiring proprietary APIs. "Probably the most innovative system in this space," wrote one judge, "Leveraging object storage in a low-cost architecture for general-purpose applications." Another judge added, "For its target use case this is a game-changing solution. You can reuse any drive and take advantage of objects under a scalable file service, plus dedupe, and drag-and-drop DR [disaster recovery]."

"Exablox was founded on the premise of reimagining storage, coupling uniquely powerful storage software and unparalleled ease of use with disruptive economics," said Douglas Brockett, CEO of Exablox. "We're delighted by the recognition this award brings; this validation of our solution reinforces the view that customers deserve more than what the industry has been offering."

The Storage Magazine-SearchStorage.com 2013 Products of the Year awards were presented by the editors of TechTarget's Storage Media Group and judged by the Storage magazine-SearchStorage.com editorial staff, in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts and consultants. Judges selected the 16 "Products of the Year" from among enterprise storage-related products introduced, upgraded, and shipped after Nov. 1, 2012, and before Oct. 25, 2013. The winners were selected according to specific categories including innovation, performance, ease of integration into existing environments, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value.

OneBlox's scale-out architecture enables customers to scale performance, capacity and availability non-disruptively and with zero configuration. As OneBlox enables capacity growth in three minutes without application downtime or reconfiguration, organizations can purchase exactly the needed capacity and grow over time simply by adding any number of disk drives or additional OneBlox. Furthermore, the ability to Bring Your Own Drives from any manufacturer brings down storage costs by a factor of 10. In addition to being affordable and simple to manage, Exablox provides enterprise features such as cloud-based management, a scaleable global file system, inline deduplication, and continuous data protection (CDP) that mid-size enterprises need to support their growing business.
