Enterprise Strategy Group Commends SolidFire for Enterprise-Class Data Centers

June 21, 2014

SolidFire reported that Enterprise Strategy Group's (ESG) hands- on lab testing of SolidFire's all-flash array technology validates the agility, scale and automation of its scale-out storage architecture and says it is "ideally suited to meet the current and ever-changing demands of the next-generation data center."

According to a company release, ESG's June 2014 Lab Review: SolidFire for the Enterprise concludes, "If your organization is frustrated with the limitations of traditional storage for scale- out workloads and you're striving to deliver IT-as-a-Service from a next-generation data center, ESG Labs strongly recommends that you consider SolidFire for the enterprise."

ESG Lab noted it has evaluated more than a dozen flash-based storage solutions and highlights the focused and pragmatic approach SolidFire is taking in its development and go-to-market efforts. Instead of trying to compete with emerging flash versions of the traditional modular disk arrays, ESG points out that SolidFire is focused on scale-out needs of enterprise-class data centers and the largest cloud service providers.

An IT research, analysis and strategy firm, ESG visited SolidFire's headquarters to perform hands-on validation of its all- flash array technology. Three storage clusters were made available for testing in the following categories: Agility and Automated Management; Efficiency and Reliability; Guaranteed Performance and Scalability. Tests were run against two full cluster configurations to simulate management, provisioning, replication and performance testing in a virtual desktop (VDI) environment.

SolidFire is a company focused on all-flash storage systems.
