Compellent

Soran (left), Guider (center) and Aszmann were pioneers in automated tiered storage and storage virtualization. Compellent, which launched in 2002, was unique in that it was designed from the start as a channel company. It engaged potential VARs and their customers a year before the first product hit the market. Also unique is the ability to constantly update installed products without the need for forklift upgrades.
