TechTarget Names DataGravity Discovery Series Best of Show and New Technology Winner at VMworld 2014

DataGravity today announced that its first product, the DataGravity Discovery Series, was selected as the Best of Show award winner, as well as the Gold award winner in the New Technology category at TechTarget’s Best of VMworld 2014 awards. On SearchServerVirtualization.com, the judges explain that they chose the DataGravity technology because of its “unique approach that uses a passive engine to do real-time scanning to deal with compliance questions and data usage.”

Launched last week, the DataGravity Discovery Series is the industry’s first ever data-aware storage platform that tracks data access and analyzes data as it is stored to provide greater visibility, insight and value from an organization’s information assets. The DataGravity Discovery Series delivers storage, data protection, data governance, search and discovery, powered by an enterprise-grade hardware platform and patent-pending software architecture that enables midmarket companies to glean new insights and make data-driven business decisions.

The unified storage platform offers insights at the same richness of intelligence, regardless of whether the data is block or file. It supports NFS, SMB and iSCSI LUNs, with the additional capability to manage virtual machines natively. The DataGravity software architecture lets IT teams, as well as security, compliance and line-of-business users unlock the value in their data by automatically analyzing information as it is ingested, without impacting production operations. The result is active insight that will fundamentally change what the market expects from primary storage and transform how professionals in IT, marketing, compliance, human resources, sales and other departments work.

“Organizations have the right to know information about their stored data, which is what we are enabling with the DataGravity Discovery Series. We are giving visibility into the data and taking storage from a back-office container to a front-office asset,” said Paula Long, CEO and co-founder of DataGravity. “These awards confirm that the industry understands the future of storage is about much more than the data container and is really about the insights the data holds.”

The Best of VMworld 2014 awards winners were selected from more than 175 entries by an independent team of experts and editors from TechTarget's SearchServerVirtualization.com, who evaluated products based on innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
