Compuverde’s software-defined storage solution delivers extreme resilience, performance and cost savings for scale-out virtual environments. Differentiators include:

  • All-in-one approach: The solution provides a single storage platform for ease of use, high performance and cost effectiveness.
  • All the flavors of storage: The combination of file system, block and object store in one offers a variety of options based on need, as well as flexibility and agility.
  • Scale-out: Rapid, linear scaling using nodes/x86 building blocks – without the need for special-purpose hardware.
  • Reduced complexity: Because there is no single point of failure, there are no expensive bottlenecks to address. This allows businesses to lower total cost of ownership and to focus on core business value and new innovation projects rather than IT maintenance.

Now in its 14th year, the Storries are highly regarded in the storage industry and attract major vendors. The awards honored companies across 32 categories, including:

  • Seagate – The Storage Hall of Fame
  • Oracle – Storage Company of the Year
  • Barracuda Networks – Channel Partner Program of the Year

Stefan Bernbo, CEO and founder, Compuverde, said: “Most of the world’s data centers are still using vertical scaling solutions for storage, but the modern data deluge is overwhelming this legacy architecture. Our software-defined storage solution enables enterprises to scale quickly and cost-efficiently in order to remain competitive. We are honored by the recognition this award provides.”
