Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendor” report are innovative, impactful and intriguing

BOSTON, MA – April 30, 2015 — / — Storiant, a leading provider of object storage software for private clouds, today announced that the company has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies” report published April 9, 2015 by Gartner, Inc. Storiant’s “data lake” unifies long-term storage solutions that were historically separate, including those for data analytics, business continuity, archive and compliance. The Storiant solution is scalable to exabytes, SEC-compliant, affordable ($.01 gigabyte/month TCO) and accessible with a common NAS interface.

“Data storage is quickly trending to a two-tier model comprised of performance storage and capacity storage – and Storiant’s mission is to be the next generation of capacity storage,” said Jeff Flowers, CEO of Storiant. “We feel that being included in Gartner’s Cool Vendors report acknowledges the market demand for a long-term storage solution that delivers the scalability and economics of the public cloud, but in a private cloud solution that is more secure and compliant. We believe Storiant delivers the best of both worlds.”

Key technical attributes of Storiant include an object store for structured and unstructured data; a NAS gateway; SEC 17a-4(f) compliance with immutability; 18 nines of reliability (RAID + replication engine); and power management.
