Backup Appliance Takes Number One Spot

Backup Appliance Takes Number One Spot

STORServer beat the likes of Commvault, EMC and Symantec winning first place in the new DCIG buyers guide to take 4 of the top 5 slots including the coveted #1 spot. The only other vendor to make the top five was Symantec but they did not receive the “Enterprise” tag that STORServer received. When asked, Jarrett Potts, Director of Strategic Marketing replied, “It is nice to be recognized for the technology we have and its ability to truly function better that any other storage management appliance in the world.”

While STORServer took the lion’s share of the top 5, it is worthy to note who is missing. While Symantec did take second there was no appearance of EMC or Commvault in the top 10. EMC Avemar did not even make the top 50.

In the Hardware rankings STORServer took all 5 top slots and 6 of the top 10 showing how the STORServer appliance series, which is built on IBM hardware, is truly the best of the best. Other industry leaders such as Symantec (8th) and EMC (37th) did not fare so well leaving little room for them to spin out of the bad rankings

The STORServer EBA 3100 took top spot with a 91.70. The scores show that the model that STORServer follows is viable and brings enterprise features, functions and service to small and medium companies.

With STORServer’s ability to treat all data like it is enterprise data and with appliances that are priced under $10,000 the real question is why is there not one of these systems in every small to medium business.


STORServer also has something else that sets them apart from all the rest, they have a 30 money back guarantee which is unheard of in the IT industry.
