Three European Storage Services Vendors Named as IDC Innovators 

London, May 22, 2017 – International Data Corporation (IDC) today published an IDC Innovators report recognizing three EMEA-based storage services vendors - CTERA Networks, StorPool and Quobyte - for their engineering efforts to help service providers (SPs) overcome their storage-related challenges.

CTERA Networks offers SPs a platform to deliver hybrid local/cloud backup and file sync and share services, hosted in customers’ own datacenters to meet compliance needs. StorPool eliminates single points of failure and guarantees end-to-end data integrity by aggregating all capacity and performance into a single pool of storage. Quobyte delivers a highly scalable, horizontal storage infrastructure turning servers into high-performance storage systems.

“European SPs are evaluating software-defined, cloud-ready storage services that allow them to offer IT as a service from behind their own firewalls and datacenter networks, so they can have strong control over data governance as well as meet regulatory compliance (GDPR),” said Archana Venkatraman, Research Manager, Datacenter Research at IDC. “These Innovators are expanding the range, capabilities and technology of storage services to help SPs overcome some storage-specific challenges.”

The new report, IDC Inn o vators: European Software-Defined Storage Solutions for Service Providers, 2017  (IDC #EMEA42537617), profiles the three European-headquartered vendors, their innovative technologies, or new business models in helping SPs overcome storage painpoints.
