DataCore Achieves Category Leadership for a Software-Defined Storage Offering with Highest Rating in Independent Evaluation by WhatMatrix
Comes out on Top of Numerous Industry Leaders in In-Depth Technical Evaluation
READING, UK., July 11, 2017 – DataCore today announced that it has received the highest rating for a software-defined storage offering in a rigorous, independent evaluation by WhatMatrix. Moreover, DataCore achieved second place in the overall software-defined storage (SDS)/hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) combined category, coming in at less than 1% below Nutanix, the top rated product.
“We conducted a rigorous, independent evaluation of DataCore for our combined SDS/HCI category”, said Herman Rutten, category consultant, WhatMatrix. “In a comparison of nearly 100 rated criteria, DataCore has emerged as a category leader in the SDS space, a testament to their long standing innovation in this market.”
WhatMatrix’s mission is to provide a comparison platform driven by visitor demand and IT community collaboration. The independent, third-party evaluation featured an in-depth technical evaluation of more than 20 offerings in the SDS/HCI market from vendors including Atlantis, Cisco, DataCore, Dell/EMC, HPE, Microsoft, Nutanix, Simplivity, and VMware.
Featuring a rich set of automated data storage services, automation and unmatched performance driven by Adaptive Parallel I/O technology, DataCore offers powerful benefits not widely known by general IT infrastructure professionals (but loved by customers and validated in independent surveys). These include infrastructure-wide management from a single console, and a robust, hardware-agnostic solution that can be deployed in multiple different configurations to best serve customer use cases (hyperconverged, hybrid-converged, cloud, converged server SAN and storage virtualisation). DataCore is easily adaptable as the environment grows, works with any storage hardware that is already deployed, and future-proofs investments as new storage technologies are introduced and cloud adoption continues to grow.
“The full capabilities of our software-defined storage solutions are often underestimated, but our top rating in the WhatMatrix SDS/HCI category will now help more companies make smarter choices in their evaluation of SDS/HCI solutions,” said Carrie Reber, vice president of Worldwide Marketing at DataCore Software. “Additionally, our ranking highlights DataCore’s importance in this market segment. DataCore has been around for nearly 20 years, serving more than 10,000 customers.”
