Proven MPC Vendor DDN Adds an Exciting New Commercial Enterprise Storage Market Focus
This IDC Vendor Profile examines a major new market expansion effort undertaken by DataDirect Networks (DDN), a vendor of software-defined, scale-out storage systems that today primarily targets the massively parallel computing (MPC) markets. These efforts potentially more than double DDN's existing total available market (TAM) and, if executed on effectively, promise to move the company in the direction of more recurring commercial enterprise-oriented revenue streams. As part of the review of this business strategy, this Vendor Profile also discusses the acquisition of Tintri, a vendor of midrange enterprise storage systems, by DDN and how the vendor can best leverage those assets to the advantage of new customers.
