The delivery of truly differentiated offerings that create opportunities for partners during this unprecedented period is the crowning achievement of our 2020 Tech Innovators.



HPE Primera

With a recent update to its Primera storage system, Hewlett Packard Enterprise has beefed up the embedded InfoSight AI capabilities of the system so that it can now take dynamic action to automatically resolve storage management issues. HPE Primera, which guarantees customers 100 percent uptime, has gone beyond predictive analytics to take direct actions that optimize resource utilization, dramatically improving storage performance for customers. Prior to the update, storage administrators would have to act on the AI-based recommendations of the system. The recent Primera enhancements are enabling new levels of agility for customers, who can now spend less time managing and tuning mission-critical storage infrastructure.


Dell EMC PowerScale

Dell Technologies’ recently launched PowerScale storage line enables channel partners to attack the edge through native public cloud integrations; software that can tag, track, analyze and report on unstructured data; and a 1U platform capable of scaling from 11 TB to 60 PB of raw capacity.

IBM FlashSystem 9200

IBM’s FlashSystem 9200 offers three to four times the performance and 17 times the rack density of the company’s FlashSystem A9000 line—but at a price that is 40 percent to 60 percent less expensive, depending on configuration.

Infinidat InfiniBox

Infinidat InfiniBox provides petabytes of capacity with 100 percent data availability, along with certified integration with leading applications. The company also is providing capacity on-demand for InfiniBox—with cloud-like elastic pricing that enables 3X to 5X more capacity than paid for, and growth immediately when needed.

Synology SA3200D

Synology’s SA3200DSA3200D is an active-passive dual controller storage unit that’s targeted for uses including high-availability file storage and sync and disaster recovery. The system features 12 bays for configurable RAID storage along with whole system redundancy.  

Vast Data Universal Storage Version 3
