SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/21/14 -- Exablox, the company reimagining storage, today announced it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the 2014 Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies Report(1). Gartner evaluated Exablox's award winning OneBlox®, the industry's first scale-out network attached storage solution, based on object storage technologies, and OneSystem®, a secure multi-tenant cloud-based management service.
Each year, Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports highlighting these innovative vendors and their products and services. The annual reports highlight emerging vendors that provide innovative technologies warranting attention from prospective customers.
OneBlox delivers a powerful yet easy-to-deploy storage system that enables organizations to scale performance, availability and capacity non-disruptively and without reconfiguring applications. With features such as a global file system, inline deduplication, continuous data protection, encryption and disaster recovery, OneBlox is an enterprise-class scale-out storage solution at a fraction of the cost of traditional storage solutions. With zero configuration for nearly every major storage task, OneBlox delivers a flexible, plug-and-play storage solution that enables organizations to efficiently scale capacity, satisfying changing application storage requirements. Exablox's BYOD (Bring Your Own Disk) strategy for OneBlox enables organizations to mix and match different types, speeds and capacities of retail-priced disk drives, driving costs down by a factor of 10.
OneSystem is a secure, cloud-based management service enabling global proactive monitoring, reporting and management of OneBlox storage resources from any browser. Additionally, its multi-tenant architecture is ideal for managed service providers (MSP) that offer managed storage, managed backup and disaster recovery services. OneSystem eliminates the need for on-premises management software, reducing configuration complexity and delivering 24/7 management from anywhere in the world, giving service providers comprehensive visibility into their customers' OneBlox infrastructure.
"We believe being named a Cool Vendor by Gartner supports our conviction that organizations are in need of easy-to-use, affordable, scale-out storage for primary and backup data," said Doug Brockett, CEO of Exablox. "We feel this honor, along with the rapid market acceptance of OneBlox, demonstrates that we are addressing the significant gap in the market between solutions that are either too large and expensive, or that lack the comprehensive data management features that organizations require."
