SUSE Enterprise Storage – Product of the Year
SUSE Enterprise Storage — having only been launched just a little over one month ago — just picked up two awards at this year’s Network Computing Awards in London: “Storage Product of the Year” and “Product of the Year”.
“To us SUSE has always been at the forefront of innovation, and their product offerings have always stood head and shoulders above the rest,” said Ray Smyth, editor of Network Computing. “Their two wins highlight how good they are at innovating and delivering premium enterprise products and solutions at affordable prices. This was not lost on the readers of Network Computing who voted for SUSE in their droves.”
Besides being dubbed “Product of the Year”, SUSE Enterprise Storage is also getting a big thumbs up from the tech news media. Such as this quote from Jack Wallen at Tech Republic.
“And now… self-healing, self-managing, distributed software-based enterprise storage. The enterprise needs it, and SUSE has it. This is a brilliant move by a company that should be on the radar of every enterprise business.”
Or this one from Dan Kusnetzky over at Virtualization Review:
“The major claim to fame for SUSE is taking open source technology and all of its relevant components and making it available to its customers in an easy-to-install, easy-to-use, supported way. Other suppliers tend to make a selection of the options available rather than offering everything. This means that SUSE prides itself on offering customers the greatest flexibility. Take a look at what SUSE is doing with both OpenStack and SDS, and I expect you’ll be impressed.”
Well done, SUSE Enterprise Storage. Not bad for a 1 month old. Not bad at all.
SUSE Enterprise Storage, powered by Ceph, enables organizations to build cost-efficient and highly scalable storage using commodity off-the-shelf servers and disk drives, and it is well suited for object, archival and bulk storage with features including cache tiering, thin provisioning, copy-on-write cloning and erasure coding.
