Sphere 3D (NASDAQ:ANY) has announced a new release across its SnapServer product line.
As quoted in the press release:
Designed to allow IT departments to modernize their data center, the SnapServer Hybrid and All Flash Array solutions continue in the SnapServer brand’s tradition of providing rock solid performance for thousands of organizations of all sizes.
The overall market for flash continues to show strong growth. During the first quarter of 2017, sales of All Flash Array (ARA) jumped 48 percent on a year-on-year basis, per the latest figures from market research firm Dell’Oro Group. In total, the category generated over $1.3 billion for data storage vendors. Also, the figures from Dell’Oro Group predict that all-flash array revenue will grow approximately 40 percent in 2017 to reach nearly $7 billion.
This major refresh for the SnapServer platform not only increases the value proposition for new customers but provides a direct path for existing customers to benefit from Overland-Tandberg’s proprietary Guardian OS® (“GOS”) operating system, as well as the additional support for all-flash array and hybrid array deployments.
“The digital transformation for customers of every size and the role that a modern data center can play for business efficiency and resiliency cannot be overstated,” said Peter Tassiopoulos, President of Sphere 3D. “The introduction of the new SnapServer capabilities can go a long way to help ensure that this transformation takes place with a robust and secure platform for many years to come.”
